Biography
I was an undergraduate at the United Medical and Dental Schools of Guy’s and St Thomas’ Hospitals, undertook my PhD research at the UCL Institute of Neurology, and specialist training in neurology in London. I am an Honorary Consultant Neurologist at the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery, with a specialist interest in multiple sclerosis (MS) and other neuroinflammatory diseases of the central nervous system.
Research Themes
Research Summary
My research uses magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to provide new insights into the pathogenesis and pathophysiology of MS, and translate these into more effective treatments and better care for people with MS. I am pursuing three main themes:


1. The evolution and clinical consequences of grey matter and superficial white matter pathology;
2. The development of novel MRI biomarkers for use in clinical studies and treatment trials;
3. Identification of MRI prognostic markers in MS.
Teaching Summary
I teach undergraduate and postgraduate students, and have supervised or co-supervised BSc, MSc, PhD and MD students’ research. I am the Lead for Electives and a Student Support Tutor at UCL Medical School.
