I am a pediatric neuropsychologist in the Department of Neuropsychology at CHOA. I work primarily with children in various rehabilitation settings who have sustained a brain injury. My primary interests are understanding brain recovery following traumatic brain injuries and examining possible predictors for functional recovery.


My primary areas of research include measuring and predicting outcomes following pediatric brain injury, characterizing the recovery trajectories of children with disorders of consciousness and examining early predictors of outcome in this population, examining biological markers of injury in children with traumatic brain injuries  and exploring their potential role in both treatment and recovery.
