Biography & Interests

Clinical Interests

My many clinical interests include childhood stroke, childhood CSVT, and childhood obesity.

Research Interests

I study children with stroke, and try to understand the mechanisms behind why children have strokes. Specifically, I investigate the potential of hypercoagulable and inflammatory biomarkers in prognosticating outcome and recurrence in childhood-onset arterial ischemic stroke.
