I am a neurosurgeon-scientist and Chair of the Department of Neurosurgery. I have clinical expertise in the surgical management of brain tumors such as complex gliomas, meningiomas and skull base tumors. My lab focus is the study of human stem cells for regenerative purposes in the brain, but also as tools for the study of brain tumors.
