Shasha Wu, MD, PhD, specializes in the diagnosis and management of adult epilepsy. Using sophisticated EEG and computer imaging techniques, she works to identify the source of a patient's seizures and determine the best possible course of treatment.

Dr. Wu's research focuses on the investigation of EEG biomarkers for the epileptogenic tissue, such as infra slowing activity and High Frequency Oscillations using intracranial EEG recordings. The goal of the research is to help in delineating the epileptic brain tissue for epilepsy surgery and to improve the surgical outcome.
