Research Interests

My area of research interest covers the study of brain injury and neuroprotection in the neonate. Using a combination of clinical examination, bedside electrophysiological monitors and MR imaging techniques, such as spectroscopy and diffusion tensor imaging (DTI), I am studying the long term neurodevelopmental impact of EEG seizure treatment in the neonate. In the premature infant, I am evaluating the neonatal brain using multi-modality monitoring
