Research interests 

My current research interests are in advanced neuroimaging applications for pediatric neurosurgery. I strive to understand brain function better and make surgeries in the brain as complete yet as safe as possible. 

Research foci 
  • Outcomes in spasticity management, epilepsy management and brainstem tumours
  • Intraoperative MRI applications
