Associate Professor of Neurology (Neurophysiology/Epilepsy)

Focus of Work


My clinical practice focuses on the care of women with epilepsy. This includes contraceptive and pre-conception counseling as well as the management of epilepsy during pregnancy. I am the site-PI of the MONEAD (maternal outcomes and neurodevelopmental effects of anti-epileptic drugs)which is actively recruiting pregnant women with epilepsy. I am also interested in the use and understanding of continuous EEG monitoring in the critically ill and am the site-PI for the Critical Care EEG Consortium.
