Biography

Dr. Volpi is board certified by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology for Adult Neurology, and in Neurosonology (including physics, carotid and transcranial Doppler) by the American Society of Neuroimaging (UCNS approved).

Description of Research

Dr. Volpi´s research interests are in the management and prevention of ischemic stroke, and the critical care of patients with neurological illnesses such as intracerebral hemorrhage, epilepsy, and nervous system infections. His studies also involve the use of ultrasound in the evaluation of blood flow to the brain and development of novel therapies for improving patient outcomes in stroke.
