CN Year 1

Genesis Ayala Lopez

I am currently a PGY-3 pediatric neurology resident. I completed a full Pediatrics residency in Puerto Rico, a small and beautiful tropical island, and now I am grateful to be part of this wonderful Child Neurology Residency program. I truly believe his program aims to serve a unique pediatric patient population while offering the best learning opportunities possible.

Although I am not yet decided on a fellowship, I currently am interested in studying headaches and headache management. 

Carlos Ramirez Mongil

I am from Puerto Rico and am grateful to be part of this amazing family that is the Child Neurology Residency at Boston Medical Center. Witnessing the impact of a Pediatric Neurologist on improving a patient's quality of life has inspired me to give back to the community while getting the best training possible here at BMC. I'm mostly interested in Epilepsy, but I am still exploring fellowship options. 

CN Year 2

Taha Fathima Khan

I’m a PGY-4 resident.  I completed my first two years of residency through the Leadership in Equity & Advocacy (LEAD) Track at the Boston Combined Residency Program. I’m originally from India and have lived in 5 countries, and as a result, have experienced many different healthcare systems. I have an interest in global health & health policy. I graduated from medical school at Dalhousie University in Canada and I completed an MPH at the Harvard School of Public Health prior to starting residency. I founded a nonprofit for children’s rights in India, Child Awareness Project, and have remained involved in children’s rights while in residency. I am interested in the impact of adverse perinatal/early childhood exposures on neurodevelopment. After graduation, I hope to work in the area of legislative and health policy, alongside clinical pediatric neurology.

Tahir Sheikh

I am a one of the PGY-5 Pediatric Neurology residents. I went to medical school in Universidad Iberoamericana, Dominican Republic. I did a few years of research in Brooklyn, NY, publishing a few articles on TBI, Moyamoya disease, and Hypoxic Ischemic Encephalopathy. I completed residency in Pediatrics at Lincoln Medical Center in Bronx, NY. I am currently undecided on a sub-specialty within Neurology, but my areas of interest are TBI and epilepsy.

Amanda Romeu

I’m one of the PGY-5 pediatric neurology residents. I completed a full Pediatrics residency on the Jersey Shore and joined BMC to learn more about the neurology of children. I’m glad to have the opportunity to become part of this greater community, and to serve this population. It has been fun to learn alongside my fellow residents and to explore and discover Boston with my family! I plan on specializing in pediatric epilepsy and working in areas with increased need.
