I am interested in all aspects of movement disorders. I spend most of my time seeing patients with Parkinson's disease and other movement disorders and have research interests in behavioral aspects of Parkinson's disease, particularly drug induced psychosis and fatigue. I am also interested in Huntington's disease, Machado-Joseph disease (spino cerebellar ataxia type 3), episodic ataxia type 2, as well as drug induced movement disorders.
I obtained my bachelor's degree at the University of Chicago in mathematics, master's degree in math from Washington University, MD from Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons, Neurology Residency at the Neurological Institute of New York, Columbia-Presbyterian Medical Center and then moved to R.I. in 1982. I pursue clincal research related to movement disorders, primarily Parksinon's disease, but also Huntington's disease, drug induced movement disorders, Machado-Joseph disease, etc.
