I am a graduate of Yale College, Boston University Medical school and Mayo Clinic Neurology Residency.

I also served in the USAF for 10 years. I now work at Yale Medical School and Yale New Haven Hospital doing Neurology care with emphasis on Epilepsy in adults and children. I have spent much time in teaching and research. I have been honored to be elected President of the American Epilepsy and received many Awards and Prizes related to my work.

I still enjoy seeing and caring for patients.
