My Biography & Research

Biography

Dr. Aungaroon received her medical degree, first-class honors, from Mahidol University, Ramathibodi Hospital, in Bangkok, Thailand. She completed her residency in pediatrics at Ramathibodi Hospital. Dr. Aungaroon then completed her residency in pediatric neurology and her fellowship in pediatric epilepsy at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center in Cincinnati, OH.

In addition to direct patient care, Dr. Aungaroon has strong interests in clinical epilepsy research including medical and surgical treatment for children with epilepsy. She is currently conducting a study aimed at developing a better understanding of electrocortical stimulation for language and motor mapping in children undergoing epilepsy surgery. She is also conducting a study to explore the utility of SISCOM (Subtraction Ictal SPECT Co-registered to MRI) in evaluating epilepsy surgery planning in children. Finally, Dr. Aungaroon is interested in clinical neuropharmacology studies in pediatric epilepsy.
