Jurriaan M Peters, MD PhD

Jurriaan Peters is a child neurologist with additional expertise in pediatric epilepsy and clinical neurophysiology. He is the principal epileptologist at the Multidisciplionary Tuberous Sclerosis Program at Boston Children’s Hospital (BHC). He is an assistant in Neurology at Boston Children’s Hospital, and an Assistant Professor of Neurology at Harvard Medical School. In the Computational Radiology Laboratory, his research is aligned with his clinical strengths, and focuses on establishing EEG biomarkers and diffusion imaging predictors of the neurological phenotype in Tuberous Sclerosis Complex (TSC), a genetic neurocutaneous disorder strongly but unpredictably associated with epilepsy, cognitive disability and autism. His work also includes new application of EEG modeling techniques for the localization of seizures, including the merger of EEG and MRI data to achieve better non-invasive seizure localization prior to epilepsy surgery.
