I am a pediatric rheumatologist with a Master's of Science Degree in Clinical Research whose activities include patient care, fellowship education, and clinical research. My research interests include neurologic manifestation of systemic autoimmune disorders (primarily SLE, APS, vasculitis, and autoimmune encephalitis). My interest in immuno-neurology has led to a secondary appointment in the child neurology division at BCM.
I have received grant funding and research awards for pilot research studies. I am the pediatric rheumatology program director and co-lead a national pediatric rheumatology mentoring project. Locally I am involved in the TCH Dept. of Pediatrics Fellows' College.
