I have always found the Neurologic exam fascinating, which is what initially drew me towards the field of Movement Disorders. I enjoy using my observational and diagnostic skills to identify treatments for patients that will improve their quality of life.

In my free time I enjoy playing the violin and listening to live music, hiking and other outdoors activities, and attending events around the city.

I am interested in research focused on deep brain stimulation and tremor control in patients with Parkinson’s disease and essential tremor.
