Biography & Interests
My many clinical interests include childhood stroke, childhood CSVT, and childhood obesity.
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.
In my spare time, I enjoy skiing, golfing, and spending time with my six year old twins.
