Description of Research Expertise

My training in clinical epilepsy and biomedical research represents over a decade of dedication to my career goal: to utilize both the advancing fields of invasive neurophysiology and neuroimaging to better localize epileptic networks in medication refractory epilepsy patients. It is my hope that improving localization will enable epileptologists to better assign individual patients to the most efficacious therapy, for example, seizure control devices, resective surgery, or continued medical management.

Description of Clinical Expertise

I have expertise in epilepsy and the presurgical evaluation of epilepsy patients. I am medical director of the Epilepsy Monitoring Unit at the University of Pennsylvania. I also have expertise in electroencephalography (EEG) and epilepsy neuroimaging.
