Dr. Ofori completed a masters in statistics, as well as a masters and doctoral degree in the Kinesiology and Community Health department at the University of Illinois. During his graduate work, he investigated the mechanisms that mediate the integration of auditory and visual feedback. His doctoral work also focused on age-related differences in oral and manual force control.
Dr. Ofori is interested in using multimodal imaging, nonlinear analyses, and statistical modeling to understand brain dynamics associated with multimodal sensory-motor interactions and memory, biomarker discovery and pharmaceutical rehabilitation of neurologic disorders, and individual differences (e.g., gender and lifestyle) within neurological disorders and across the lifespan.He is also a Co-Investigator for the 1Florida ADRC (http://www.1floridaadrc.org/).
