Biography & Interests

Clinical Interests

While in medical school, I discovered that working with brain-injured children was a rewarding privilege. Children�s disabilities not only affected themselves but the entire family unit. The more I worked with these children, the more I felt that if we were able to prevent brain injury before birth, the personal, familial, and societal benefits would be substantial. I have been able to combine my research interests in pregnancy with my passion for caring for disabled children and their families.

Research Interests

My research focuses on child neurology, perinatal/neonatal hemorrhagic stroke and stroke in all ages.
