I began as an undergraduate at Duke University, where I got a joint B.S. in Psychology & Zoology focusing on the biological basis of behavior in 1985. With support from the Medical Scientist Training Program at the University of California in San Diego, I completed M.D. and Ph.D. degrees in 1992. After finishing my Neurology Residency at Johns Hopkins University in 1996, I joined the faculty there and focused on clinical and research questions in Movement Disorders. I joined the faculty at Emory University in 2008, where currently I am Professor in the Departments of Neurology and Human genetics.
