Our research group specializes in the development and application of diffuse optical spectroscopies to study the brain. These non-invasive, light-based tools enable real-time bedside monitoring of microvascular hemodynamics. In this seminar, I will use our recent work in two high-risk patient populations at high risk of stroke (subarachnoid hemorrhage and sickle cell disease) to elaborate on how these tools work, and how they can be used to identify biomarkers of stroke.

Dr. Buckley is an Assistant Professor in the Wallace H. Coulter Department of Biomedical Engineering at Georgia Institute of Technology/Emory University and the Department of Pediatrics at Emory University. She received her PhD from the Department of Physics and Astronomy from the University of Pennsylvania in 2011 and completed postdoctoral training at the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia and at Massachusetts General Hospital. Her research focuses on the development, validation, and clinical translation of diffuse optical spectroscopies for brain monitoring.
