Following her fellowship in vascular neurology and neurocritical care at Massachusetts General Hospital, she completed a fellowship in interventional neuroradiology (INR) involving more than 1,000 INR procedures at Centre Hospitalier de l'Universite de Montreal with the internationally renowned experts Jean Raymond and others. She has now been involved in a total of more than 3,000 INR procedures, including more than 500 brain aneurysm interventions (coilings / flow diversion) and 350 acute stroke interventions.

Dr. Nguyen's clinical and research interests include brain aneurysm coiling / flow diversion, acute intra-arterial therapies for stroke and the impact of COVID-19 on cerebrovascular disease. Other clinical interests include neurocritical care, pre-operative embolization for head and neck tumors, diagnostic and therapeutic treatment for pulsatile tinnitus, carotid and intracranial stenting, subarachnoid hemorrhage, spinal vascular interventions, traumatic carotid and vertebral dissection, subdural hematoma embolization, vertebroplasty and kyphoplasty for acute spinal fractures.

Dr. Nguyen has authored more than 100 peer-reviewed publications, contributed to national guideline statements and book chapters. She is a reviewer for the neuroendovascular section of 8 neuroscience journals and has made more than 80 presentations at scientific meetings on a national and international level. She serves on the Editorial Board of Stroke and is Associate Editor of Frontiers of Interventional Neurology Journal.

She was elected board member of the Society of Vascular and Interventional Neurology (SVIN) in 2008, re-elected 2014-2017, Research Chair of the SVIN in 2013, and Secretary of the SVIN in 2019-2021. She was awarded Fellow of the SVIN (FSVIN) in 2012 based on her contributions to the field of Interventional Neurology. She was awarded Fellow of the AHA (FAHA) in 2018 and is the American Heart Association Board of Director for the Boston area 2018-2020.

Dr. Nguyen served as the 2017 Acute Endovascular Treatment Section Chair of the International Stroke Conference and 2017 SVIN 10th Annual Meeting Chair, where the landmark DAWN endovascular stroke study was presented with its online publication in the New England Journal of Medicine.

She was awarded Boston Magazine Top Doctor in Neurology for 2017, 2019, Be Exceptional Award for Boston Medical Center in 2018, and SVIN Distinguished Service Award in 2018. She received the Neurology Golden Brain Attending Award for BU medical student teaching in 2019.
