I am an Assistant Professor of Neurology at the All India Institute of Medical Sciences, New Delhi.
Training: My medical training started in 2006 when I joined Kasturba Medical College, Mangalore for my MBBS. Thereafter, I did my MD in Internal Medicine at Sarojini Naidu Medical College, Agra and DM in Neurology at AIIMS, New Delhi.
Research areas: Deeply interested in post stroke epilepsy, primary central nervous system vasculitis and neuroprotection in stroke, apart from stroke and its care in general.
Awards: Best outgoing neurology resident in 2019, young investigator award from WSO in 2018 and 2022.
Professional: I am actively involved in clinical neurology and research for the past few years and I love to teach. My aim is to be able to increase stroke awareness to the point where people rush to the hospital immediately upon having a neurological deficit. I am also a blogger for Stroke journal for 2021-23.
Publications: Have published 50+ papers in PubMed indexed national and international journals including a randomised controlled trial on Citicoline use in hyperacute ischemic stroke and the largest cohort of PCNSV from India (third largest in the World).
In Private: I am always having a bad hair day and am an avid sports fan (watch better than I play): India, Roger Federer, Manchester United, Max Verstappen and Fernando Alonso. Animals and the people I love are my soft spot.
Achieving our vision of a life free from stroke is a task that WSO cannot achieve alone. We are committed to building our partnerships at the global, regional and national level to scale up and deliver improvements in prevention, treatment and support to reduce the burden of stroke.
