    Collapse Overview
    I started as a Multiple Sclerosis Clinical Research Fellow at UCSF in July 2017, after completing residency in Neurology at the University of Toronto in June 2017. I have a strong interest in clinical research related to multiple sclerosis, and my research mentors at UCSF include Dr. Waubant and Dr. Graves. My research interests include identifying modifiable risk factors for MS and interventions targeted at these, clinical trials of disease modifying therapies (DMTs), the impact of pregnancy on those with MS and MS management during pregnancy, and pediatric onset MS. Other areas of interest include studying treatment of fatigue in MS.

    Altmetrics Details PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
