As a pediatric neurologist and epilepsy specialist, Dr. Shrey’s clinical interests include infantile spasms, Lennox-Gastaut syndrome, refractory epilepsy, intracranial monitoring, epilepsy surgery, and healthcare quality improvement. His research interests include using quantitative methods to analyze and understand epileptic disorders, such as infantile spasms and Lennox-Gastaut syndrome, as well as applying modern technology to solve complex questions that arise in patients with neurological conditions. With his background in biomedical engineering, he is working to bring multiple advances in neuroimaging to CHOC Children’s including PET-MRI fusion, three dimensional CT and MRI reconstruction, and intracranial electrode localization for epilepsy surgery planning.
Since joining CHOC Children’s in July 2014, Dr. Shrey has worked with the Comprehensive Epilepsy Center to advance the standard of care for children with epilepsy through the development of new technology and quality improvement measures. He has served as a liaison between CHOC Children’s and other research groups, including UCLA, UC Irvine, and the Pediatric Epilepsy Research Consortium. He has developed research collaborations with UC Irvine neuroscientists and was recently awarded one of the inaugural UC Irvine “ CHOC Children’s Research Foundation Collaborative Research Grants to study quantitative biomarkers in patients with infantile spasms. He has also developed an online digital curriculum for the epilepsy fellowship program at CHOC “ UC Irvine, including an atlas of EEG findings, a library of journal articles, and a collection of lectures covering many salient topics within pediatric epilepsy.
Dr. Shrey is board certified in child neurology, clinical neurophysiology and epilepsy. He holds a bachelor’s of science in biomedical engineering from Northwestern University, attended medical school at University of Cincinnati College of Medicine, and completed his pediatrics and child neurology training at UCLA. He also completed a subspecialty fellowship in pediatric epilepsy at CHOC Children’s and UC Irvine. He is a member of the Gold Humanism Honor Society, the American Epilepsy Society, the American Academy of Neurology, and the Orange County Medical Association.
