I am a neurointensivist with a primary focus on taking care of patients with acute neurological illness in the neuroscience intensive care unit. The most common diagnoses that I manage include traumatic brain injury, subarachnoid hemorrhage, intraparenchymal hemorrhage, ischemic stroke, status epileptics, acute neuromuscular weakness, and general critical care. My research interests include the optimization of medication dosing in patients with acute neurological illness by studying the effect of critical illness on the pharmacokinetics of commonly used medications in this ICU population. Additionally, our research group is involved in identifying key opportunities and the subsequent development of tools using health analytics and artificial intelligence based predictive algorithms that can assist in clinical decision making, continuous quality monitoring and providing early warning systems for patients with acute neurological disease.
