My overall career goal is to help improve the care of children with neurologic disability. Early in my training I decided to focus on neurogenetics, as many causes of neurologic disorders in childhood have a genetic basis. After completion of my pediatrics and medical genetics training at the University of Connecticut, I trained in child neurology at Washington University in St. Louis. I see patients at the University of Rochester as part of the Neurogenetics Consultation Service, the Hereditary Ataxia Program, and the Neurofibromatosis Program.

I am interested in improving access to child neurology care in settings with limited resources, and have participated in clinical and educational projects in Latin America and sub-Saharan Africa.
