    Collapse Overview 
    Collapse Overview
    I am a neurologist specializing in infectious and autoimmune diseases of the central nervous system. I see patients with autoimmune diseases like multiple sclerosis as well as patients with a wide array of infectious diseases that impact the nervous system like HIV, neurocysticercosis, neurosyphilis, viral encephalitis and fungal infections like coccidiomycosis (valley fever). I do research in the DeRisi Lab using cutting edge genomic techniques to identify rare and novel causes of infectious and autoimmune encephalitis in the hopes of improving clinical outcomes for these often very hard to diagnose and treat patients.
