Research Interests

I am a consultant neurologist with expertise in multimodal neuroimaging, behavioural neurology, and cognitive neuroscience. Together with Professor James B. Rowe, I have been recently awarded an MRC research grant to treat impulsivity in Progressive Supranuclear Palsy (PSP). I am also involved in the NIMROD project, a major BRC investment to study the role of inflammation in dementia and related disorders.

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