I strive to conduct the best care for children through clinical and research excellence.

Clinical Interests:


Pediatric stroke

Traumatic brain injury

Research Interests:

My field of research includes pediatric neuroimaging. My clinical and research activity is focused on the application of advanced magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) techniques to study multiple pediatric neurologic disorders. Some of my projects evaluate how the findings derived from advanced MRI modalities are changing during development e.g. maturation of white matter tracts using diffusion MRI. In addition, I apply quantitative methods to study structural and functional connectivity e.g connectomics, to better understand mechanism of neuroplasticity in children with congenital malformations, stroke and traumatic brain injury.
