I am an expert in the diagnosis and management of movement disorders including Parkinsons disease tremor dystonia and Huntingtons disease. I completed a Movement Disorders Fellowship with focused training in botulinum toxin and deep brain stimulation (DBS)/intraoperative microelectrode recording. My research is aimed toward a better understanding of cognitive and behavioral changes in movement disorders especially following DBS. My collaborative work is focused on improving surgical outcomes and postoperative DBS programming through the evolution of novel imaging techniques and the identification and analysis of intraoperative electrophysiology signals. My interests also include identifying biomarkers in early Parkinsons disease and at-risk populations including imaging markers. I have extensive clinical trial experience participating in studies in early and advanced Parkinsons disease dystonia and other neurodegenerative disorders.
