    Collapse Overview
    I am a neurologist with a focus on the evaluation and treatment of nerve and muscle disorders. My clinical work includes clinics in neuromuscular medicine, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), and inherited neuromuscular disorders, and electromyography/nerve conduction studies.

    I am committed to pursuing research in parallel with my clinical work. My past research investigated clinicopathological correlations and epidemiology of neurodegenerative disorders. I am currently interested in clinical and translational research in neurodegenerative and inherited neuromuscular disorders.
