I come from a small family of neurologists, so one might say that becoming a neurologist was in my genes. My father is a practicing general neurologist and my brother is an epileptologist. From a young age, I accompanied my father to his practice in Kingston, New York, where I learned about various afflictions of the brain. These experiences led me to follow in his footsteps.

I specialize in vascular neurology, which is stroke care, and neurocritical care. My passion has always been treating people who are in critical condition and helping those with severe neurological injuries return to their meaningful and productive lives. I care for people who have had brain and spine trauma, a stroke, or hemorrhage. I offer guidance and support to them and their families, since I believe that strong social and emotional support is critical to patients’ recovery and wellbeing.

My research focuses on early brain injury following subarachnoid hemorrhage, long-term, functional outcomes following intracranial hemorrhage, and palliative care for critically-ill patients. Since the inception of the 2019 coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic, my research has focused on neurological complications of severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) infection. I am a member of the World Health Organization (WHO) Brain Health Neurology and COVID-19 Forum, which aims to advance knowledge, understanding, and care of COVID-19 patients with neurological disorders worldwide.

I have published more than 100 peer-reviewed articles and am editor of the handbook Decision Making in Neurocritical Care. I enjoy teaching residents and medical students and have been blessed with the opportunity to serve on the board of directors of the Neurocritical Care Society and lecture around the world.

I was born in New York City, and I am thrilled to again be here at NYU Langone Hospital—Brooklyn. Our diverse, agile, innovative, and energetic team has introduced a new level of care to Brooklyn. I’m excited to see what we can achieve next.
