Senior Research Scientist
West Orange, New Jersey, United States
Olga Boukrina received a PhD at Rutgers University, working with Dr. Stephen José Hanson in cognitive neuroscience and advanced statistics. She completed a post-doctoral fellowship in neuroscience of language under the direction of Dr. William W. Graves, investigating brain function in healthy adults and stroke survivors.
Dr. Boukrina expertise includes clinical neuroimaging and data analysis, including lesion mapping, lesion-deficit analysis, diffusion, perfusion, univariate/multivariate pattern analysis of functional neuroimaging data, and network connectivity analysis for deriving global patterns of brain activity. She is a senior research scientist in the Center for Stroke Rehabilitation Research, where she directs the Neurolinguistics and Brain Connectivity Lab. Dr. Boukrina’s work focuses on behavioral and physiological research to improve the understanding, diagnosis and treatment of stroke-related impairments in reading and spatial processing.
Dr. Boukrina oversees the workflow of several imaging biomarker studies of these conditions. Her research is funded by grants from the Bolger Trust and the National Institute of Deafness and Communication Disorders (NIDCD). This work is also made possible through her close partnership with clinical colleagues at the Kessler Institute for Rehabilitation and the Adler Aphasia Center.
