Scientific Focus

Current Research and Scholarly Interests

I care for neurologically critically ill patients in the intensive care unit and patients with acute stroke and TIA in the inpatient stroke unit. I also see outpatients in a stroke clinic and conduct follow-up of patients discharged from the neurological ICU, in the “Outcomes clinic”.
I am interested in the study of the radiological characteristics and temporal profile of edema/ tissue injury in the perihematomal area around spontaneous intracerebral hemorrhage. I am also interested in developing protocols for emergent reversal of anticoagulation in a life-threatening hemorrhage situation.
