I received my MD from the University of Maryland School of Medicine, followed by completion of residency training in Neurology at the University of Maryland Medical Center. I am board certified by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology. I then pursued a fellowship in Clinical Neurophysiology and Epilepsy at the University of Maryland, followed by a certification in Sleep Medicine. I joined the faculty at the University of Maryland School of Medicine in 2009. I was named Director of Neurology Medical Student Education in 2014.


My clinical interests include the evaluation and treatment of epilepsy, seizure, and sleep disorders. I have a special interest in nocturnal frontal lobe epilepsy and the neurological disorders of sleep including restless legs syndrome, narcolepsy, and parasomnias. I also have a special clinical and research interest in the interface of epilepsy and sleep.
