I have worked on
the epilepsy surgery programs at the Radcliffe Infirmary Oxford and the National
Hospital for Neurology & Neurosurgery London since 1995. I am currently working as a Consultant Neuropsychologist on the epilepsy surgery program at the Institute
of Neurology. I have over 80 academic publications in epilepsy, including
books, book chapters and journal articles.
interests are focused on memory and epilepsy. A neuropsychological assessment
is a long and often stressful procedure for a person with epilepsy to undertake.
I am committed to ensuring that the results of these investigations are
utilised for the maximum possible benefit for every patient, particularly in
the pre-surgical setting. It is this commitment to evidence based practise that
drives my research endeavours.
I serve on the the editorial boards of Epilepsia, Epilepsy & Behavior,
Epilepsy & Behavior:Case Reports and Epilepsy Professional. I also
currently serve on the ILAE Diagnostic Commission. I also regularly review research
grant applications for the Wellcome Trust, Brainwave, Epilepsy Research UK and
other international grant giving bodies.
