Focus of Work


I am a pediatric neurologist interested in all aspects of a child's welfare. My emphasis is on paroxysmal diseases- those that intermittently incapacitate children such as migraine headaches and epilepsy. I also have long standing interest in the biology of brain formation and in brain malformations.
