Dr. Lomax is an assistant professor at Queen’s University jointly appointed to the Division of Neurology and the Division of Respirology. She completed her MD and MSc degrees at the University of Calgary, and Neurology residency at Queen’s University. She received the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons Detweiler Travelling Fellowship and the Cecil Patience Reid Fellowship to pursue further training in Epilepsy and Genetics under the supervision of Professors Sam Berkovic and Ingrid Scheffer at the University of Melbourne in Australia. Upon returning to Queen’s University, she pursued additional training in Sleep Medicine. She is certified to read EEG (CSCN diplomate) and polysomnography. She has an active clinical practice with multidisciplinary Sleep and Epilepsy clinics, as well as a Transition clinic that helps to guide children and their families as they transition from pediatrics into adult care. Dr. Lomax has been advocating to our LHIN that Kingston General Hospital receive accreditation as a District Epilepsy Centre, which would allow our patients local access to assessments for epilepsy surgery. She has also served on national boards that created guidelines for driving in epilepsy, as well as the transition from pediatric to adult epilepsy care. Her research interests include the genetics of generalized epilepsy and epilepsy syndromes (such as North Sea Myoclonus Epilepsy), as well as cardiac arrhythmia in epilepsy. As she participates in the Stroke as well as Neurology inpatient services, her budding research interest includes sleep disordered breathing in acute stroke.
