Professional background

I’m a Consultant Neurologist at the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery, Queen Square.

I studied medicine at Christ’s College, Cambridge University, graduating in 2001 (MA MB BChir), and have worked in clinical neurology and HD research since 2005. I obtained  MRCP in 2005 and specialty certification in 2015. My PhD research on biomarkers and inflammation in HD was undertaken at UCL with Prof Tabrizi, and won the 2009 Queen Square Prize in Neurology. I also won the 2012 Huntington Society of Canada Community Leadership Award, the 2014 Huntington's Disease Society of America Researcher of the Year Award, and the 2014 UCL Institute of Neurology Lecturer of the Year award.

Research interests

My research interest is in Huntington's disease. I’m an MRC Clinician Scientist at UCL Institute of Neurology, working in the Department of Neurodegenerative Disease in the Huntington’s Disease Research Group on clinical and experimental neurology research in Huntington’s disease, focused on accelerating and placing UCL/UCLH at the cutting edge of clinical trials of novel therapies for HD.

I serve on the medical advisory panel of the Huntington’s Disease Association, the Editorial Boards of Journal of Huntington’s Disease and PLoS Currents: Huntington’s Disease and the steering committee to the UK All-Party Parliamentary Group on Huntington’s disease. I am the Lead Facilitator of the European Huntington’s Disease Network‘s Biomarkers Working Group and an emeritus member of the Network’s Scientific and Bioethical Advisory Committee. I am the co-founder and editor-in-chief of HDBuzz, an independent source of Huntington's disease reasearch news for patients and their families [http://hdbuzz.net].
