Hiba A. Haider’s research focuses on optimizing care processes for patients with seizures and status epilepticus, a serious neurologic emergency. She is interested in leveraging big data such as electronic health records to study the effect of care processes on patient outcomes. She has received recognition for her multidisciplinary work in organizing, standardizing, and implementing institutional seizure management protocols. She is also interested in studying the role of neuroimaging as a biomarker for outcomes in patients with acute brain injury and status epilepticus.

Haider has chaired, directed, and lectured at national and international epilepsy/clinical neurophysiology meetings, and serves on the Council for the American Clinical Neurophysiology Society. She is an elected fellow of the American Clinical Neurophysiology Society and American Epilepsy Society. She is co-editor of Handbook of ICU EEG Monitoring (Demos Medical Publishing, 2018). Her research has been published in Neurology, JAMA Neurology, Epilepsia, Archives of Neurology, and Clinical Neurophysiology.
