My research includes attempting to improve function after stroke by using a rapid response team to treat stroke symptoms quickly and minimize the consequences of stroke.
I also have interests in seizure surgeries and development of a protocol that maximizes the outcome of hopefully being able to resect the lesion at the time of placement of monitoring grids instead of resection one week after grid placement while providing the maximal amount of comfort.

I have a special interest in neurosurgical anesthesia, including seizure surgeries, awake craniotomies and neuroprotection.
I want to do what is best and safest for the patient, regardless of time or other constraints.
In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my children, riding and training mules, horses and dogs. I enjoy outdoor activities including hunting, fishing, camping, hiking and biking. And when trapped indoors by bad weather I love reading. I also enjoy growing and preparing my own food.
