Scientific Focus

Current Research and Scholarly Interests

My chief clinical focus is in pediatric epilepsy, especially the relationship between stroke and epilepsy. My translational and basic science interests lie in neuronal development and physiology, and in using that knowledge to create treatments for disease, especially in the injured developing brain. To investigate these subjects, I am currently participating as a fellow in the Deisseroth lab, combining techniques of in vivo and in vitro electrophysiology with optogenetics.
