Expertise DescriptionI have more than 20 years of experience as a practicing and consulting neurologist, pediatric neurologist, neuroscientist, and environmental health expert. The specific areas of my clinical scientific expertise include: traumatic brain injury, headache/migraine, neurotoxicology, metabolic neuroscience, movement disorders, environmental health, and the autism spectrum disorders. I also have unique expertise and experience, as well as an additional masters degree in architectural sciences, with a focused interest in human safety, injury prevention, neuroergonomics, kitchen design, neurobiology of aging and the assisted living facility milieu and the Sick Building Syndrome. I have developed teaching models in environmental science and nutrition for the education of scientists and have taught, lectured, and presented my research to symposia and international societies. My work in these areas has been published in global scientific literature by a variety of journals and publications, including: Neurology, Headache: the Journal of Head and Facial Pain, Pediatrics, and International Journal of Thoracic Diseases. I have over 20 years expert witness experience with consultation and deposition.
Areas of Expertise
I have over 20 years of wide-ranging experience and consulting activities in areas spanning both advanced general medicine, pathogenesis of complex medical conditions and forensic analysis of clinical care outcomes. I have reviewed cases related to the topics of autism, complex headache syndromes, autoimmune conditions, traumatic brain injury, medical toxicology, brain injuries, and memory disorders.
My consulting experience includes a design science consulting work in spatial information analysis and design of surgical care clinical areas generating accolades. I developed a system-wide headache-specific pharmacologic manual and clinical guide for clinicians to minimize adverse effects of drug interactions and optimize care of patients. I have experience designing and directing health science seminars and keynote lectures across various disciplines. Over the past two decades, I was invited to present at medical, design, and scientific events for academic, governmental, and advocacy organizations, including: Autism Society of America, Harvard Graduate School of Design, National Association of Neonatal Nurses, and the International Neurotoxicology Conference.

I have been involved with advanced diagnostic medicine following years of clinical, academic, and directorships roles in the neurosciences. In Florida, I direct a specialized neuroscience center and a rare and complex disorders diagnostic program in which a hybrid medical, forensic and disease pattern recognition analysis is deployed to successfully benefit individuals with complicated, recalcitrant health problems. The program offers a comprehensive advanced diagnostic approach of unexplained medical conditions and undiagnosed disorders.
