Biography

Biography:

My advanced trainings in Adult as well as Pediatric Neuroradiology and clinical work has led me to specific areas of interest for research such as Pediatric Neuroimaging, Advanced Brain Tumor Imaging Techniques such as fMRI, DTI, MR Perfusion, MR Spectroscopy.

In my daily routine clinical work, I enjoy active interaction, sharing/exchanging knowledge with Medical students, Residents, Fellows, and Faculties from various clinical departments such as Neurosurgery, Adult Neurology, Pediatric Neurology, Emergency Medicine, Neuro-Ophthalmology and Infectious disease etc.

Being an active member in education committees for Fellows, Medical students; I enjoy creating educational lectures and resources that will enhance the learning experience for our fellows, residents and medical students.

I have been an active member of several national and international professional organizations, including the American Society of Neuroradiology (ASNR), American Society of Pediatric Neuroradiology (ASPNR), Radiological Society of North America (RSNA), American College of Radiology (ACR), American Association of Radiologists from Indian origin (AARI), Indian Radiological and Imaging Association (IRIA).
