I completed my initial degree at the University of Cambridge in Natural Sciences (Experimental Psychology) and then went on to study Medicine at the University of Oxford (preclinical) and University College London (clinical) qualifying in 2001. I subsequently went on to train in general medicine completing the Membership of the Royal College of Physicians exam in 2004. Following this I trained in Neurology at the Royal Free Hospital and the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery completing training in August 2014. I am now an Honorary Consultant Neurologist at the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery and MRC Clinician Scientist at the UCL Institute of Neurology.

Research Summary

My research has focused on the neuroimaging and neuropsychology of frontotemporal dementia (FTD), particularly in relation to their underlying genetic causes. Research in the field of FTD has led to the publication of over 100 Pubmed-referenced papers and I have spoken at a number of international conferences about the work. Since 2011 I have co-ordinated the Genetic FTD Initiative, GENFI, a multicentre cohort study of presymptomatic genetic FTD (www.genfi.org.uk), and have been the clinical lead for the International FTD GWAS Consortium. I have also set up FTD UK (www.ftduk.org), an annual scientific meeting of UK researchers who work in the FTD field (running since 2011), and run a website dedicated to providing research updates to the general public about FTD: FTD talk (www.ftdtalk.org). I am involved in running a support group for individuals from families where there is a genetic cause for FTD (www.ftdsupport.org).

Teaching Summary

I currently supervise 8 PhD students (3 primary, 5 secondary) and 1 Clinical Neuroscience MSc student. I am also an undergraduate tutor in the UCL Medical School. I am assisting in the development of the new UCL Dementia MSc (Neuroscience) which is now receiving applications and due to start in September 2016.
