I am originally from Colombia, graduated as Medical Doctor from Javeriana University in 1988, and then worked as an Emergency Room doctor at the Colombian Red Cross for five years prior to relocating to the US in 1993. I did my Neurology residence at SUNY Downstate Medical Center in Brooklyn, NY, where I have the opportunity to do basic Neurophysiological research in Magnetic Stimulation of the brain. I became Chief resident During my last residency year and then moved to New Orleans for Subspecialization in Neuromuscular Diseases. Now I currently work in a group private practice in Princeton, NJ. I am an American Academy of Neurology Board-Certified Neurologist and I am also Board Certified by the American Association of Neuromuscular disorders and Electrodiagnostic Medicine.
I have always been drawn to the basic questions of how our physical world works and to the deep questions regarding life, purpose, universe and life origin, consciousness, what happens after death? are we all material or spiritual? I have always been an objective thinker and maintain a sense of wonder and marvel at nature, the cosmos, the intricate and complex and wonderful mechanisms in biology from the cell up; and enjoy reading about the great scientific minds through history. I am marvel by current Scientific discoveries, but at the same time, I feel that science cannot explain it all. We should place in perspective how little we know of the material Universe which amounts to less than 5% ( the rest, dark matter, and energy are unknown); this should bring some humility to the discourse. In No Greater Faith than that of Science, I wanted to share with the reader some of my personal reflections about the basic questions of life and our existence.
