Suejen is a psychologist with a special interest in epilepsy. After her bachelor in Psychological sciences she started an MSc in cognitive neuroscience where she approached epilepsy for the first time.
Her very first interest was mapping brain networks related with rolandic alpha and beta frequency bands using a very advanced technique called simultaneous IcEEG-fMRI. Suejen further extend her expertise in applying simultaneous EEG-fMRI in children and adults with focal epilepsy to identify the epileptogenic zone and to help the improvement of the pre-surgical evaluation process using general linear modelling and source localisation.
During her PhD, she has collected the rarest population of newly diagnosed drug naïve patients with idiopathic generalised epilepsy. She expanded her skills in understanding brain networks mechanisms and their interaction with medication in idiopathic generalised epilepsy by applying structural and functional measures of the brain and advanced graph theory modelling. At the moment she is exploring endophenotypes of treatment response in idiopathic generalized epilepsy using pre-treatment state to identify markers of drug response.
The Richardson Lab comprises a team of researchers from several different disciplines, including neurology, psychology, engineering and physics. We study the brain as an entire functioning system, rather than studying small components of the brain.
