A graduate of the United States Naval Academy, I earned my medical degree and doctor of philosophy
in neuroscience from the Uniformed Services
University of Health Sciences (USUHS). I then
completed an internship in internal medicine
at Bethesda Naval Hospital, followed by a three-year
neurology residency at the National Capital Consortium.
I served as chair of the Department of
Neurology at Bethesda Naval, an associate professor of
neurology and neuroscience at USUHS, chairman of the
USUHS Department of Neurology as well as director of the
USUHS neurology labs.
My clinical focus is general neurology. My
research interests are broad, and my most recent works
are focused on the neuropathology of traumatic brain
injury, impairment of the aspartate-malate shuttle in rats
and the improvement of cognitive performance with the
ketogenic diet after brain injury. I serve on
the editorial board for two journals and brings extensive
publication and presentation experience to Kentucky Neuroscience Institute.
I am now practicing neurology at the Kentucky Neuroscience Institute.
