Srishti Nangia, MD is an Assistant Professor of Pediatrics at Weill Cornell Medicine and Assistant Pediatrician at NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center.  She directs the Pediatric EMU and Pediatric EEG program.  She is board certified in Neurology with Special Qualifications in Child Neurology, Clinical Neurophysiology and Epilepsy. 

Dr. Nangia is a native New Yorker, who graduated Phi Beta Kappa and summa cum laude with a BA in Psychology from Barnard College, Columbia University. She then earned her MD from SUNY Downstate Medical Center. This was followed by a pediatric residency at Northwell Health (formerly Schneider Children’s Hospital, LIJ).  She then completed her child neurology training and a two year combined pediatric and adult clinical neurophysiology fellowship at NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center. 

Dr. Nangia subsequently joined the Division of Epilepsy at Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago. Her clinical and research interests include early onset epilepsy, infantile spasms, Lennox Gastaut Syndrome (LGS), Doose Syndrome/epileptic encephalopathy, tuberous sclerosis complex (TSC), genetic epilepsies, fon's Syndrome, epilepsy surgery, ketogenic diet, cannabidiol and use of EEG to identify epilepsy syndromes. A family affected by TSC, with the youngest child with infantile spasms who was treated with inappropriate medications, inspired her to create an accredited multidisciplinary TSC center. The TSC center has received generous support and funding from BCureful, a nonprofit organization. 

After seven years, Dr. Nangia rejoined NYP-Weill Cornell Medical Center as Director of Pediatric EMU and Pediatric EEG, Program Director of Pediatric Clinical Neurophysiology Fellowship and Medical Director of the Ketogenic Diet Program. She directs multiple clinics including the infantile spasms program and LGS clinics and joins Neurosurgery in multidisciplinary clinics for presurgical evaluation of refractory epilepsy patients, post-surgery follow-up, tumoral epilepsy and TSC.
