UCL Principal Supervisor,UCL Subsidiary Supervisor

I graduated from Downing College, Cambridge in 1998 and went on to study medicine at University College London, qualifying in 2001. My PhD research examined the integration of visual signals in the healthy and damaged brain and was undertaken at the Wellcome Trust Centre for Neuroimaging, UCL.  Since that time, I have trained as a clinical neurologist at the Royal Free Hospital and National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery. I currently hold a UCL Excellence Fellowship that allows me to combine clinical neurology with neuroscience research.

Research Summary

My research explores the changes in visual perception that take place in Parkinson’s disease. I use a combination of psychophysical and neuroimaging techniques such as functional MRI and magnetoencephalography in patients with sporadic and genetic forms of Parkinson’s to understand where and how visual processing goes wrong in different forms of Parkinson’s disease.

Teaching Summary
I supervise 3 PhD students and several MSc students. I jointly run the Dementia in the Clinic Module of the UCL Dementia MSc (Neuroscience) with Dr Jonathan Rohrer.
