He has Bachelor’s degrees in Electrical Engineering and Business Administration from the University of Colorado, Boulder. The primary focus of his research is adult-onset focal dystonias. He is the Principal Investigator for research projects funded by the DoD’s Congressionally Directed Medical Research Program and the National Institutes of Health and is on the Medical & Scientific Advisory Council for the Dystonia Medical Research Foundation.
