Research Summary

The metrics of the impact of my research using Web of science shows 101 published papers(2021) and the h- index of 19 with 1207 citations. In addition to this, I have one textbook, four book chapter and a wide network of collaborations at UCL and globally. I have helped as site co- investigator for several multicentric studies at Luton and Dunstable University hospital and UCLH. My vision to is to improve the symptomatic treatment of movement disorders, utilising principled, data-driven approaches to identify new therapies in specific subgroups, and taking these results through to clinical trials to help change clinical practice. This opportunity would provide the time and training to begin to develop this framework. Leveraging existing data, this could also be used for many different symptoms and conditions and would be applicable to a wide range of movement disorders. My current clinical and research  interest includes tremor, Parkinson’s, Fahr’s and disorders of brain mineralisation, adolescent movement disorders and transition services( jointly with GOSH).
