Medical Director, Epilepsy Monitoring Unit and Tuberous Sclerosis Complex Clinic
I joined the Neuroscience Program of Cook Children's in 2009 as a pediatric epileptologist, and now serve as the Medical Director of the Epilepsy Monitoring Unit and Tuberous Sclerosis Complex clinic. My clinical and research interests focus on the treatment of childhood onset epilepsy, specifically those patients with uncontrolled epilepsy or those for which the cause has not been determined.
