  • Associate Professor
  • Dept of Med Phys & Biomedical Eng
  • Faculty of Engineering Science
I completed my PhD and early post-doctoral training at Kings CollegeLondon, investigating the health benefits of Functional Electrical Stimulation(FES) cycling for people with complete spinal cord injury (SCI). I then moved to Imperial College London to carryout a 5-year post-doc focussing on gait and the pathophysiology ofknee osteoarthritis. In 2013, I returned to the field of SCI rehabilitation research when I carried out a short post-doc at the RehabilitationInstitute of Chicago, focussing on locomotor training and acute intermittent hypoxia as therapeutic interventions after SCI. I am now a Clinical Scientist and an Associate Professor in UCL’s Department of Medical Physics and Biomedical Engineering. My lab forms part of the Aspire Centre for Rehabilitation Engineering andAssistive Technology (CREATe) and the London Spinal Cord Injury Research Centre, based at the RNOH in Stanmore.
Research Summary
My research aims to improve health and quality of life for people with longstanding health conditions, with a focus on neuromodulation combined with activity-based therapy for neuroplastic recovery after Spinal Cord Injury(SCI). In particular, I have investigated the beneficial effects of 1) Functional Electrical Stimulation (FES), 2) transcutaneous Spinal Cord Stimulation (SCS) and, 3) Dorsal Genital Nerve Stimulation (DGNS), in people with chronic complete and incomplete SCI. I also have an interest in the potential health benefits of epidural stimulation for people living with SCI.
