I am a Neurocritical Care physician with research expertise in the medical genetics of complex disease, specifically ischemic and hemorrhagic stroke. I have devoted my research career to leveraging computational, genetic, and epidemiologic tools to define mechanisms underlying cerebrovascular disease, with the ultimate goal of using this information to drive improvement in stroke care through the identification of novel treatment targets and implementation of precision strategies for primary and secondary prevention. I am clinically appointed at Massachusetts General Hospital in the Division of Neurocritical Care and Emergency Neurology, with research appointments at the MGH Center for Genomic Medicine and the Broad Institute. My clinical, research, and leadership activities serve the common goal of providing excellent care to patients with neurologic disease through academics and investigation, education and career development, clinical excellence, and administration and institutional service.
