Clinical interests: As a clinical neuropsychologist, I am interested in brain-behaviour relationships in people with known or suspected central nervous system dysfunction. My current clinical work is with the Epilepsy Programme at LHSC, where I see adults who are being investigated for possible seizure disorder. The theoretical approach consists of a flexible-battery neuropsychological evaluation with assessment of additional contributing factors such as mood and personality, where relevant, leading to evidence-based analysis of cognitive strengths and weaknesses. The work is conducted as a consultation service within a multi-disciplinary team of professionals who have mutual goals of accurate patient diagnosis and treatment decision-making.
