Profile
ABOUT ME

I am a pediatric neurologist and have special interests in tuberous sclerosis, pediatric headaches and general pediatric neurology. Early in my education, I was privileged to work with outstanding child neurologists sharing their love and enthusiasm for this specialty. It is essential not only to connect with the little toddler or adolescent but also the family to arrive at the right diagnosis and therapy. Listening to their story, understanding their needs, building the important partnership with the family and at the end getting a smile from a patient are most rewarding and satisfying. Besides work I love classical music, exercise and spend time with my family.

Clinical Focus and Research
MY RESEARCH INTERESTS

My research currently revolves around tuberous sclerosis and headaches. I am studying tuberous sclerosis trying to find neuromarkers as that there seems to be a critical window within the first year of life for possible intervention (Werner et al). The functional development of the temporal lobe, which is part of the brain, may play a crucial role in the developmental outcome in tuberous sclerosis. I am also currently planning major research in migraine and sleep. The glymphatic system, which is a clearance pathway, or paravascular system or functional waste clearance pathway for central nervous system (CNS) is effective only during sleep.
