Biography

I am a Specialist Registrar in Neurology in London and have a clinical and research interest in Movement Disorders. I am currently funded by the National Institute for Health Research as a Clinical Research Fellow at UCL Institute of Neurology to investigate the pathophysiological mechanisms and clinical features of tremor. I previously held an NIHR Academic Clinical Fellowship during which I began my training in clinical Neurology and began developing my research interests. During mu undergraduate medical degree, I completed an intercalated BSc in Neuroscience during which time I was awarded a studentship by the Royal Society for research into cellular electrophysiology of the inner ear after neural damage.

Research Summary

I am interested in the pathophysiological mechanisms and clinical aspects of tremor in a variety of neurological disorders. I have just completed work on the mechanisms of tremor in inflammatory and hereditary neuropathies. Further, I am currently working to understand electrophysiological characteristics of dystonic tremor, parkinsonian tremor and functional tremor as well as the treatment response to dystonic tremor. I am also involved in collaborative work on clinical and electrophysiological aspects of functional movement disorders and dystonia. My work involves clinical assessment.as well as the use of electrophysiological techniques such as brainstem reflexes, peripheral nerve stimulation, surface EMG, accelerometry, transcranial magnetic stimulation, EEG and MEG.




Teaching Summary

I am regularly involved in teaching Neurology on a variety of courses at undergraduate and postgraduate level including the Queen Square Neurology Diploma and Masters courses as well as Part 1 and PACES for the Membership of the Royal College of Physicians examinations. I am a frequent examineer at undergraduate OSCE exams at the Royal Free and University College Medical School. I have twice been awarded the UCL Top Teachers award in 2007 and 2008.
