After her fellowship, she returned to Mount Sinai to join the faculty. She is director of the epilepsy fellowship and epilepsy clinical trials research.
Dr. Yoo is a clinician, educator, and clinical researcher. She monitors and interprets EEGs for patients in the epilepsy monitoring units, intensive care units, and in ambulatory settings within the Mount Sinai Health System. She sees patients age 12 and up, and is passionate in the care of patients with epilepsy/seizure disorder including those with drug-resistant epilepsy. She performs a thorough surgical evaluation for the patients with drug-resistant epilepsy with the team, and is devoted to improving their quality of life.

B(I)RDs (Brief potentially Ictal Rhythmic Discharges)
Dr. Yoo described an interesting EEG rhythm, B(I)RDs (Brief potentially Ictal Rhythmic Discharges) in adult population and is continuing her research to find its role as a potential EEG biomarker for seizure activity and the seizure onset zone with scalp and intracranial EEGs.
Mechanisms of EEG Rhythmicity
Dr. Yoo is also interested in the mechanisms of EEG rhythmicity and further development of therapies/clinical trials for drug-resistant epilepsy.
Physicians and scientists on the faculty of the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai often interact with pharmaceutical, device and biotechnology companies to improve patient care, develop new therapies and achieve scientific breakthroughs. In order to promote an ethical and transparent environment for conducting research, providing clinical care and teaching, Mount Sinai requires that salaried faculty inform the School of their relationships with such companies.
