Research/Clinical Interests

My prior research focused on inherited forms of epilepsy caused by sodium channel mutations. I continue to be interested in genetic epilepsy syndromes.

Clinical Plans

I am in the basic neuroscience pathway within the child neurology residency and will do my research with John Swann. After graduating, I plan to pursue a neurophysiology fellowship and continue doing research on and taking care of patients with epilepsy.
