About Shannon Chiu

Dr. Shannon Chiu received her bachelor’s degree in Biology from Williams College, after which she studied at the University of Cambridge, U.K., where she obtained a M.Sc. degree in Experimental Psychology. She subsequently obtained her M.D. degree from New York University in 2014, where she also completed her Internal Medicine internship. She completed her Neurology residency at Mayo Clinic Rochester in 2018, and most recently her Movement Disorders Fellowship at the University of Florida in 2020. During fellowship, she was selected as a Smallwood Foundation fellow. Dr. Chiu’s research interests include Lewy Body Dementia, Parkinson’s disease, deep brain stimulation, and tremor.
