Scientific Focus

Current Research and Scholarly Interests

My clinical research interests focus on the field of pediatric stroke, and include causes of arteriopathies, novel neuroimaging techniques for the diagnosis of arteriopathies, and maximizing functional outcome after stroke in children. As a member of the International Pediatric Stroke Study, we contribute to an international database of children following stroke, thereby facilitating multi-centered research in this area.
