Co-director of both the Parkinson’s Disease and Movement Disorders Division as well as the STIM (Surgical Therapies Improving Movement) program at the University of Michigan.
Why I love to teach
I have a particular interest in teaching and researching Parkinson’s disease (PD) and deep brain stimulation (DBS). I've published numerous articles and book chapters on PD and related movement disorders. Additionally, I serve on the editorial boards for Neurology and Parkinsonism and Related Disorders. I also conduct clinical trials and have published a book to educate and advocate for my patients and their families.
