My care philosophy
I think it is important to truly listen to the concerns of each patient and their family. Parents know their child best and both patients and parents are central components of the care team. As part of this, I aim to work together with families to provide the best care for their child.

Experience and background
My clinical interests include taking care of children with epilepsy. I have special interests in neonatal neurology and epilepsy, as well as other early onset epilepsy syndromes. Additionally, I am interested in improving care for children with new onset refractory status epilepticus, specifically febrile infection related epilepsy syndrome (FIRES).

My research interests include neonatal neurology, specifically neuro-developmental outcomes in children with neonatal onset epilepsy and seizures. I also have an interest in febrile infection related epilepsy syndrome (FIRES), as well as other autoimmune / inflammatory epilepsy syndromes.
For Referring Providers:
My research interests include neonatal neurology, more specifically neonatal seizures and neonatal epilepsy. I am interested in neuro-developmental outcomes after seizures in the neonatal period, including early predictors of outcome and the role of EEG in assisting with prognosis. I am also interested in febrile infection related epilepsy syndrome (FIRES). This is a rare condition, although devastating for the children affected, and I hope that through multi-center collaboration we can improve the recognition, treatment, and outcomes for children with FIRES.
