Bio Sketch

Dr. Burneo received his MD from the Universidad Peruana Cayetano Heredia, Lima, Peru in 1996. He completed a neurology residency at Henry Ford Health Systems in Detroit, Michigan followed by a fellowship in Epilepsy and Clinical Neurophysiology in the University of Alabama at Birmingham, with special training in structural and functional Neuroimaging (MRI, SPECT, PET, MRS), as well as in Magnetoencephalography.

He later obtained funding to get a Masters of Science in Public Health with specialty in Epidemiology at the same institution. His research in Alabama was on the use of different functional Neuroimaging techniques in the presurgical evaluation of patients with intractable epilepsy, with emphasis in the Temporal Lobe and the malformations of Cortical Development. As part of his training in Epidemiology, he also studied the differences in access across the different ethnic groups as well as outcome following epilepsy surgery.

Dr. Burneo is currently an Professor in the Department of Clinical Neurological Sciences at Western University and Co-Director of the Epilepsy Program. Dr. Burneo also has a cross appointment with the Department of Biostatistics Epidemiology.

He is a member of the American Academy of Neurology, American Epilepsy Society, Epilepsy Foundation, and the Canadian League Against Epilepsy.


Dr. Burneos main research interests are in the field of functional Neuroimaging and epidemiology. Current projects include the use of Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy, functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging, Epidemiology of the Epilepsies, and Evidence Based Neurology.
