Biography

I graduated from the faculty of Medicine at The Ain Shams University in Egypt. I completed my internship at The Berkshire Medical Center in Massachusetts then my neurology residency at The Louisiana State University in Shreveport. I finished two clinical fellowships in Neurocritical Care and Neurophysiology as well as a research stroke fellowship at The Ohio State University in Columbus, Ohio. Following my graduation, I joined The University of New Mexico as an Assistant Professor of Neurology. My clinical practice is mainly focused on acute inpatient care, precisely in Neurocritical Care, Neuro-hospital Medicine, Cerebrovascular diseases, inpatient/ICU EEG, Transcranial Doppler, Tele-stroke, and Tele-neurology. My research is mainly focused on studying the different diagnostic, prognostic, and therapeutic aspects of acute brain injuries and dysfunction like seizures, ischemic strokes, and hemorrhagic strokes. I am also interested in teaching motivated students and trainees how to read and interpret raw and quantitative EEG.
