About Me

I am a professor of clinical neurology at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center.

I specialize in neuromuscular medicine and clinical neurophysiology. My academic career began at The Ohio State University College of Medicine in 2005. Aside from treating adults with neurological diseases, I also manage the Muscular Dystrophy Association Care Center and our electromyography laboratory.

As part of my role, I also train the next generation of clinicians and scientists. Currently, I am the director of the clinical neurophysiology and neuromuscular medicine fellowships.?

Over the course of my career, I have strived to advance the academic mission through patient-centered clinical services, education and research. In my philosophy, these pillars of academic mission are interconnected and collaboration and engagement lead to the best results.?
