The overarching goal of my research is to expand access to neurological care to underserved populations domestically and to underserved regions globally. My research focuses on epilepsy treatment and infectious diseases of the nervous system. I have active projects focused on the global burden of disease due to epilepsy, a clinical trial of preventive strategies for cryptococcal meningitis and evaluating health and economic outcomes of Kenyans with HIV-associated cognitive impairment. I also work to improve access to Neurology training for physicians from underserved regions.
