Prior to joining the Department of Neurology in 2021, I was an academic and clinical neurologist at the University of Washington and Seattle Children's Hospital.
I am a board-certified adult and child neurologist, clinical neurophysiologist, and epileptologist. My primary clinical interests include comprehensive acute and chronic care for children and teens with epilepsy, seizures, and other brain disorders, electroencephalography and epilepsy surgery.
I am also one of the panel neurologists in the Epilepsy Monitoring Unit at OCH. Our 8-bed epilepsy monitoring unit (EMU) was recognized as a Level IV NAEC level for 4 years in a row (highest possible) by the National Association of Epilepsy Centers (NAEC). The EMU was awarded a $1,000,000 grant by the Cummings Foundation to build a new 12-bed Epilepsy Monitoring Unit in the John R. Oishei Children’s Hospital, Buffalo, NY.
My research interests include quality of life in children with epilepsy, outcomes of children with drug-resistant epilepsy, epilepsy surgery and brain tumor-related epilepsy. I have mentored and am interested in continued collaborative research with residents and fellows.
