About Me

My passion for college basketball is surpassed only by my passion for behavioral neurology. This subspecialty in neurology allows me to evaluate patients with cognitive and behavioral difficulties due to a neurodegenerative process, such as Alzheimer’s disease, frontotemporal dementia, or Lewy body dementia. Establishing a long-term relationship with the patient and helping them navigate the challenges they face after being diagnosed with a neurodegenerative process are the reasons I chose to become a behavioral neurologist. The focus of each clinic visit is to address all factors which may impair brain health. Despite receiving my medical training in various parts of the country, my passion for college basketball remains strong, since I grew up in Lawrence, Kansas home of the Kansas Jayhawks.

Clinical Focus and Research
My Research Interests

Neurodegenerative diseases are neuropathologically defined by the accumulation of various proteins in the brain parenchyma. Common proteins include TDP43, amyloid beta, and Tau. I am currently interested in studying neurodegenerative diseases that accumulate the Tau protein collectively named tauopathies. More specifically, I am studying adult patients who suffer from a neurogenetic disease called Tuberous Sclerosis Complex (TSC) to determine if they develop a neurodegenerative syndrome later in life due to the accumulation of Tau in the brain parenchyma.
