Research Interests

I am a Clinical Lecturer with both a clinical and research interest in the atypical parkinsonian disorders of Progressive Supranuclear Palsy and Corticobasal Syndrome.

I use models of brain networks to understand how neuropathology progresses in the brain, with a particular focus on understanding the neuropathology of tau using functional MRI scanning.

I am on the Steering Committee for the World Young Leaders in Dementia and have an interest in public engagement with neuroscience through the arts as Scientific Adviser to the Folkestone Festival of the Brain.

A new short film by Professor Rowe about his journey as a clinician and researcher. Sponsored by AlzheimersResearchUK.
