  • Allen Ho

    Allen Ho

    Affiliate, Dean's Office Operations - Dean Other

    Bio Allen was born and raised in Irvine, California. He completed his undergraduate training at University of California, San Diego as part of the combined-degree Medical Scholars Program with a major in Economics. He then left California to attend Harvard Medical School where he earned his MD in 2014. His research interests include expanding indications for deep brain stimulation and neuromodulation, technology-driven minimally-invasive approaches to cranial and spinal neurosurgery, and quality improvement initiatives within clinical neurosurgery. In the Halpern Lab, Allen is utilizing advanced functional imaging (fMRI, DTI) to study the effects of functional neurosurgery and exploring the role of neuromodulation in addiction, OCD, and obesity in both animal models and humans. He has also completed an enfolded fellowship in complex spine surgery and has a clinical interest in spinal deformity surgery via both minimally invasive and open approaches.

  • Jonathon J. Parker, MD, PhD

    Jonathon J. Parker, MD, PhD

    Affiliate, Dean's Office Operations - Dean Other

    Bio Dr. Parker is currently a PGY6 Neurosurgery Resident at Stanford. He has focused his training and research on minimally invasive treatments for epilepsy and movement disorders in Adults and Children. He has focused his training to develop expertise in open microsurgical resection techniques, laser interstitial thermal therapy (LITT), focused ultrasound (MRgFUS), Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS), Responsive Neurostimulation (RNS), electrocorticography (ECoG), stereo-electro-encephalography (SEEG), and robotic-assisted surgery.

    Dr. Parker completed a year long enfolded fellowship in Adult and Pediatric Epilepsy & Functional Surgery with Dr. Gerald Grant and Dr. Casey Halpern. Guided by his surgical mentors, Dr. Parker has utilized state of the art approaches to improve epilepsy surgery by combing SEEG, 3D printing, whole brain tractography, and navigated operative exoscopes to guide safe surgical resections of epileptic foci. Dr. Parker's research revolves around optimizing SEEG techniques for intracranial evaluation of epileptic foci and clinically-relevant brain mapping via understanding the role of white matter in seizure propagation.

  • Jennifer Lauren Quon

    Jennifer Lauren Quon

    Affiliate, Dean's Office Operations - Dean Other

    Bio Jennifer was born and raised in New York and received her undergraduate degree in neuroscience from New York University. Her interest in the neurosciences continued as she completed medical school at Yale School of Medicine. During medical school she spent a year as a Howard Hughes Medical Institute research fellow working on an induced pluripotent stem cell model for congenital brain malformations. Jennifer has a particular interest in improving the quality and effectiveness of patient care, especially for pediatric neurosurgical patients. Under Dr. Kristen Yeom?s group at Stanford, Jennifer is using machine learning to develop automated intraoperative navigation and to improve patient outcomes. Outside of neurosurgery, Jennifer enjoys traveling, trying new food, and spending time with friends and family.
