About

As a doctor my philosophy is to treat and care for any individual regardless of their background. Seeing the recovery of a child (a crying, debilitated child to a smiling and running around child) is the best reward I can get in life.

Clinical Interests:

My clinical interest in neurology is broadly neurogenetic conditions more specifically neuromuscular disorders and brain development/malformation disorders. 

Research Interests:

I like to perform research on genetically undiagnosed patients using cutting edge genetic technology. In the long term, I would like to develop treatments and eventually apply them to my patients in clinic.
