Clinical Interests

My interest is in neonates, infants, and children with acute neurological disorders. I work in a multi-disciplinary team with neonatologists, intensivists, neuroradiologists, and neurosurgeons to provide comprehensive evaluation and management for these critically ill children. I also work with perinatologists in the Fetal-Maternal Center (FMC) to provide prenatal consultations when a brain abnormality is suspected. I participate in clinical research looking at methods to mitigate the effects of brain injury in hopes of improving neurodevelopmental outcomes.
