Personal profile

Research Interests

One of the motivations that has permeated and guided my research career is understanding the role of brain development in the pathogenesis of neurological diseases. My career as a researcher started in the basic sciences studying the role of glial precursors in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. As a fellow and junior faculty, I studied the role of hypoxia in oligodendrocyte development and its effect on white matter injury. I have continued to develop as a neonatal neurologist and neurocritical care neurologist. Currently, I serve as interim director of the Neurocritical Care Program at Lurie Children's.

My area of clinical and research focus is neonatal neurology studying different aspects of the neurological disease burden in neonates. Currently, I study the role of rapid imaging in the work up of neonatal seizures. I also collaborate to investigate new diagnostic tools for infants at risk for cerebral palsy.

I focus on the care of critically ill neonates and children with neurologic complications or primary neurologic injury. I am interim director of the Ken and Ruth Davee Neurocritical Care Program at Lurie Children's. My outpatient clinic focuses on the care of neonates and infants with neurologic disease.
