I am a clinician investigator in the Department of Surgery at the University of Toronto. I currently hold a Heart and Stroke Foundation Phase I Clinician Scientist Award for investigations in cerebrovascular disease. My specific research interests include neurovascular and endovascular neurosurgery with an emphasis on brain vascular malformations and cerebral aneurysms. I am currently the PI of a multicentre aneurysm trial and co-investigator of several clinical neurovascular clinical trials.
