      Collapse Overview
      I'm currently a faculty member in the Dept of Neurology at both UCSF and the SF VA Medical Center. I primarily treat epilepsy patients, but am also developing several projects exploring the use of mobile health applications to improve the longitudinal care of patients with chronic disease. More specifically, I am interested in conducting clinical trials utilizing mobile health technologies (online diary systems and databases, electronic pillboxes) to improve clinical outcomes and cost efficiency. I am a part of the UCSF mHealth Group and the VA Innovations Initiative Patient-Facing Effort.

      I am always eager to discuss these mobile health interests (mhealth) more specifically and am looking for collaborators!
