Biography

I am a Clinical Research Associate at the Reta Lila Weston Institute and Queen Square Brain Bank, at UCL Institute of Neurology. I am also an Honorary Consultant Neurologist at the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery and I work as a Consultant Neurologist at Darent Valley Hospital in Kent, where I lead the Parkinson's disease service. My clinical interests include Parkinson's disease, parkinson-plus syndromes and other movement disorders. 

I studied Medicine at Universidad Complutense in Madrid, qualifying in 2005. I trained as a clinical neurologist in Madrid and King's College Hospital in London where I completed a clinical fellowship in general neurology. I subsequently joined the Movement Disorders Centre at UCL Institute of Neurology where I completed my PhD on the pathophysiology of non-motor symptoms in Parkinson's disease. I combine my job as a clinical neurologist with my clinical research on Parkinson's disease.   

 

Research Summary
My research focuses on the non-motor aspects of Parkinson's disease such as glucose metabolism, autonomic or gastrointestinal dysfunction, particularly in relation to their pathogenesis and influence on the clinical phenotype. Using clinical and neuropathological studies combined with the exceptional resources of the Queen Square Brain Bank, I study how some non-motor symptoms can increase the risk of developing Parkinson's disease or affect his clinical progression. My research explores the potential mechanisms involved in non-motor symptoms in order to provide more effective symptomatic treatments and identify therapeutic targets that can slow down the progression of Parkinson's disease.
