About

I'm Yosra Hashim, a Canadian undergraduate studying medicine in an accelerated program at University College Dublin. Feel free to take a look at my Linkedin for more information.

Outside class, I spend most of my time learning about neuroscience and engineering through involvement in research and societies. I'm especially interested in neurological disorders, stimulation, rehabilitation and prosthetics.

Current research

I conduct research under the supervision of Dr. Alfonso Fasano at Toronto Western Hospital's Neurological Movement Disorders Department. I build programs for analysis using deep brain stimulation sensing.

  1. Analysis of alpha and beta wave changes in neurological movement disorders during sleep
  2. Spectrogram generation and syncing to determine frequencies associated with complex tics

Upcoming research

I will soon be supporting the Irish Dystonia Research Group at St. Vincent's University Hospital in researching temporal discrimination thresholds in adult-onset dystonia.

Contact

I'm driven to keep learning, be it on my own or with others. If you have remotely similar interests, send an email my way. I'm still learning so chances are I'll be hearing some concepts for the first time, but I'll try my best to fill in any gaps and get back to you with my thoughts!
