Provider Expertise

Clinical Interest for Patients

My clinical interests include taking care of babies and children with seizures and epilepsy. This includes caring for children after a first-time seizure and also those with more difficult to control epilepsy.

Care Philosophy

It is important to truly listen to the questions and concerns of each patient and family. I then work together with parents and patients as a team. My goal is to help patients obtain their best quality of life.

Research Interests for Patients

My research interests are focused on the field of epilepsy and include refractory status epilepticus, neonatal epilepsy, and epilepsy surgery. I am specifically interested in long-term outcomes related to each of these conditions. Currently, my primary research focus is new-onset refractory status epilepticus and febrile infection-related epilepsy syndrome (FIRES). These are rare conditions and I hope that through multi-center collaboration we can improve the recognition, treatment, and outcomes for patients with this type of epilepsy.
