Research interests:

1) Intracerebral Hemorrhage (ICH). I am interested in how acute ICH behaviour relates to clinical symptoms and recovery, and how volume, location & morphology can influence early hematoma expansion, ventricular rupture, and final outcome.

2) Neuroimaging & hyper-acute stroke. I believe multi-modal imaging can optimize acute stroke therapy; findings on CTA and CTP can guide therapeutic decision-making, and expand our current treatment windows.

3) Acute stroke therapy. Our group actively participates in multicentre trials of novel therapies for both ischemic stroke and ICH.
