Following clinical training, she completed a Master of Science in Translational Research at Penn studying immune mechanisms of injury after intracerebral hemorrhage. She then joined the faculty at the University of Connecticut and Hartford Hospital in 2010, where she was active in the Departments of Neurology, Neuroscience, Neurosurgery, and Immunology. She leads a NIH-funded laboratory identifying immunological treatment targets for intracerebral hemorrhage and stroke. Her laboratory moved to Yale in the summer of 2014, where she continues her work in stroke immunology through basic and translational studies.
