About Me

As a neurosurgeon, I specialize in neuromodulation and functional neurosurgery. When it comes to patient care, empathy is fundamental to my approach and interaction with patients. As a clinician-scientist, I’m involved in patient-centered research to improve and advance our care. I’m very passionate about discovering new treatments for conditions that were originally thought to have no cure.

In this emerging field, I focus on improving my patient’s quality of life by applying electrical stimulation to the brain, spinal cord and nerves. This is based on the recognition that neurological disorders result from a dysfunction of the brain’s networks. I focus on reversing these network dysfunctions to improve my patients’ symptoms. It’s very rewarding to see the significant potential for clinical advancements, as well as discoveries of new treatments within this field.

Working at The Ohio State University is very rewarding, especially with colleagues who are friendly, helpful and open to collaboration. Here, I’m able to work with leading experts in a wide-range of disciplines.

When I’m not working, I love to spend my time relaxing with my family and traveling.
