Ed Amorim is an Assistant Professor of Neurology at the University of California, San Francisco practicing as a critical care neurologist and epileptologist at the Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital. Dr. Amorim’s research focuses on invasive and non-invasive brain monitoring of patients with acute brain injury such as cardiac arrest, traumatic brain injury, and stroke. His group is developing tools to enable multimodal integration of brain monitoring and bio-signals time-series to neuroimaging and electronic health care data. He has a particular interest in coma neuroscience and advancing physiology-driven therapies in neurocritical care.
Dr. Amorim completed residency training in Neurology at the University of Pittsburgh followed by fellowship training in neurocritical care and epilepsy at the Massachusetts General Hospital and Brigham and Women's Hospital (Harvard Medical School). He pursued postdoctoral training fellowship in neuroscience and machine learning at the Massachusetts General Hospital and Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
