Summary

  • I am Chief Resident in Pediatric Neurology at Columbia University Medical Center. Along with my clinical responsibilities, I have a strong research interest in sports concussion. I am currently overseeing an IRB-approved retrospective research project focused on concussion injuries. We are analyzing incidence and neuropsychiatric deficits among Columbia undergraduate football players over the last 11 years (2000-2011).
