I joined the Department of Neurology as an adjunct professor in August 2015. Since 2010 I have been extensively involved in global health and international neurology. My research interests include the determinants and prevention of stroke in developing countries, the neurology of HIV/AIDS, and central nervous system tuberculosis.
I am a visiting attending physician at Mulago National Referral Hospital in Kampala, Uganda, where I spend two months every year teaching neurology to medical students, interns, and residents.
In 2012 I founded the Alliance for Stroke Awareness and Prevention Project, a student-led, volunteer initiative providing free, community-based screening and counseling for high blood pressure in Uganda, Tanzania, and India.
I am a fellow of the American Academy of Neurology, as well as chair of the academy’s International Subcommittee, a member of the Sections Subcommittee, and past and founding chair of its Global Health Section.
I graduated from the MD–PhD program at Yale School of Medicine, and I earned my MPH at the University of California, Berkeley. I completed my medical internship and neurology residency at the University of California, San Francisco.
