Personal profile

Research interests

I am a pediatric neurologist driven to provide optimal neurological outcomes for all infants at increased risk for neurodevelopmental disability. My research efforts focus upon the application of a new neuroimaging technique, functional connectivity magnetic resonance imaging (fcMRI), to the study of premature and healthy, term-born infants in an effort to characterize development of the earliest functional cerebral connections and investigate developmental differences in prematurely-born subjects. My clinical efforts are dedicated to the Neonatal Neurology Clinical Service, a multidisciplinary, integrated clinical program devoted to providing comprehensive neurological clinical care for infants at risk for adverse neurological outcomes beginning during their initial hospitalization and continuing following discharge.

Clinical interests

Neonatal neurology, pediatric stroke, cerebral palsy, CNS malformations, developmental disorders, general pediatric neurology.
