I completed my preclinical and clinical medical degree at St Andrews’ and Manchester Universities before commencing my post-graduate neurology specialist training in Manchester. I subsequently undertook a PhD in Mitochondrial Diseases at the UCL Queen Square Institute of Neurology before obtaining an NIHR academic clinical lecturer post in London. From March 2019 I take up a MRC Clinician Scientist Fellowship with Honorary Consultant status at the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery, where I co-lead  the NHS England nationally commissioned Rare Mitochondrial Disorders Service.
Research Themes
Research Summary
My research combines clinical observations with laboratory approaches to develop understanding of the molecular basis underpinning Mitochondrial Disorders and reveal fundamental insights into disease mechanisms, with the ultimate aim of developing treatments for patients with Mitochondrial Disease. During my MRC Clinician Scientist Fellowship I will investigate the role of cardiolipin, and other phospholipids, in mitochondrial DNA replication and division.
