Dr. Massey's research focuses on epilepsy, diagnosis and management of seizures in high risk neonatal populations, and EEG biomarker development
Dr. Shavonne Massey is an assistant professor of Neurology and Pediatrics at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia and the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania. She is a pediatric epileptologist with clinical and research interests in the management of brain injured neonates.
Her specific interests are the use and value of the electroencephalogram in the diagnosis of seizures, development of neurophysiologic biomarkers for brain injury and outcomes, management of seizures, and development of predictive strategies and modeling for acute and chronic outcomes in the neonatal population.
She is interested in better utilizing EEG for diagnosis and management in the following specific high-risk neonatal populations: hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy, congenital heart disease, congenital diaphragmatic hernia, and ECMO-exposure.
