I am a paediatric neurosurgeon based at Johns Hopkins Hospital, Baltimore.
My interests are mainly in minimally invasive endoscopic surgery for the treatment of hydrocephalus, brain tumors, and craniosynostosis. I also have expertise in surgical revascularization for patients with moyamoya syndrome.
My laboratory research focuses on the pathophysiology of germinal matrix hemorrhage and treatment of the associated hydrocephalus in premature infants.
