Professional Interests

I am an adult neurologist and biomedical engineer with subspecialties in clinical neurophysiology, epilepsy and neuro-ophthalmology with related research and clinical interests. Specifically, I am interested in the application of engineering methods and techniques, as well as the development and utilization of medical devices and technology to study brain function, and also to evaluate and treat neurologic diseases. I have participated in a broad range of research projects, including the quantitative analyses of neurophysiologic signals intraoperatively, and from patients with epilepsy, brain injuries, and other neurologic diseases, multiple medical device trials for the treatment of refractory epilepsy, as well as the development and testing of multiple devices, including a seizure detection device utilizing extra-cerebral physiologic recordings, a realistic EEG simulator, an EEG-NIRS recording cap, and also a portable brain recording device and app. I also serve as Director of the Clinical Neurophysiology (CNP) Fellowship and MD-PhD Programs, as well as the Intraoperative Neurophysiologic Monitoring Service. My clinical experience and training, and also technical educational background make me well suited to participate as an investigator in such endeavors, particularly serving the bridging role between my engineering and physician colleagues. As a faculty member at the medical, engineering and graduate schools I have actively participated in teaching, training and mentoring graduate, medical and pre-medical students, as well as fellows and residents.
