Alexandra Pfister, MD

SUNY Downstate College of Medicine, 2019

My Academic interests include general neurology, movement disorders and Neuroaesthetics. Science and medicine as well as the performing and visual arts have been a large part of my life and I am always seeking ways to use them in combination. I am looking forward to working with the Penn Center for Neuroaesthetics at the intersection of neurology and the arts.

My personal interests include modern dance and Taiko (Japanese performance drumming) which I pursued semi-professionally in New York City for several years before starting medical school. I have continued these activities in Philadelphia and am working to build a small Taiko and dance ensemble with my husband who is also a performer.
