Biography

I am a Wellcome Trust Clinician Scientist at the Dementia Research Centre, UCL Queen Square Institute of Neurology and an Honorary Consultant Neurologist at the National Hospital for Neurology & NeurosurgeryI undertook my undergraduate training at the University of Sheffield Medical School, completing an intercalated BMedSci (first class honours) in 2007 and an MBChB in 2008. I went on to undertake postgraduate clinical training in in general medicine in London, completing the Membership of the Royal College of Physicians examination in 2011. Following this I undertook higher specialist training in Neurology at St George’s Hospital, the Royal London Hospital and the National Hospital for Neurology & Neurosurgery, completing the MRCP Neurology Specialty Certificate Examination in 2019. I completed a PhD at the UCL Queen Square Institute of Neurology in 2018.

Research Summary

My research focuses on the use of advanced MRI techniques, combined with other cutting edge imaging and non-imaging biomarkers, to detect, characterise and track early neurodegeneration in Alzheimer’s disease, across both familial and sporadic forms of the disease. I have a particular interest in developing sensitive, quantitative imaging biomarkers of cortical microstructure, and improving our understanding of the association between molecular pathology and downstream early neuronal loss. I am currently the PI of a study using ultra-high field 7T MRI in familial Alzheimer’s disease mutation carriers. I have also previously published studies in multiple other methodological modalities, including blood and CSF based biomarkers, PET, and novel measures of early cognitive decline, with the ultimate aim of understanding how best to combine and utilise such markers to optimise clinical trials design.

Teaching Summary

I am currently co-lead for the Practical Neuroscience module of the UCL DementiaMSc.
