I am a staff neurologist at the Brigham and Women's Hospital and Massachusetts General Hospital. I completed my residency in neurology at these hospitals, followed by a fellowship in cognitive and behavioral neurology at the Brigham and Women's Hospital. I completed my medical school at Baylor College of Medicine.


My clinical and research focus is on improving diagnostic and treatment methods in neurodegenerative dementias. I have a specific interest in clinical-pathological correlations in frontotemporal dementias.
