Professional History

I am a child neurologist with special interest in cerebrovascular disorders, stroke, and neurocritical care. Currently I am involved in the inpatient Intensive Care Neurology Service, inpatient and outpatient Cerebrovascular Disorders and Stroke Program, and outpatient general neurology clinics.  I am an active member in the Cerebrovascular Disorders and Stroke Program that focuses on a multidisciplinary approach to optimize diagnosis and treatment.

My current research also focuses on cerebrovascular disorders and stroke with specific focus on risk factors in both perinatal and childhood stroke and emotional outcomes of parents and children following pediatric stroke.
