Research Summary

I am clinician scientist currently undertaking a PhD. My primary research interest is Parkinson's disease (PD) and specifically the pathogenic mechanisms underlying how the glucocerebrosidase (GBA) mutation leads to it. A large portion of my work revolves around the assembly and development of robust and efficient assessment tools for a large cohort of GBA carriers. We are using this cohort to explore the genetic factors influencing the limited penetrance of of GBA PD and as a basis to assemble a cohort for a future clinical trial. 

I also have a research interest in the role of ER/mitochondrial/lysosomal calcium signalling complexes in the GBA PD, the interaction of these mechanisms with alpha synuclein and therapeutic strategies to rescue the GBA PD phenotype.


Previously I have carried out research looking at mitochondrial neuropathies induced by anti retroviral therapies (ART). I am also a practicing neurologist and hold honorary registrar posts at the Royal Free hospital and the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery.
