....and what he greatly thought, he nobly dared...
I am a consultant neurologist at Addenbrooke's hospital and the Queen Elizabeth hospital, Kings Lynn. I see general neurology patients and also run several specialist clinics for hereditary neurological disorders, including ataxia, NF2 and tuberous sclerosis.
I am an affiliate assistant professor of the University of Cambridge and conduct clinical research in ataxia. I enjoy teaching and education, including being an educational supervisor for the neurology trainees at Addenbrooke's and a neurology CPD approver for the Royal College of Physicians.
I graduated from the University of Düsseldorf, Germany, where I also obtained a doctorate degree. However, I conducted all my clinical training as a doctor in the UK. I trained in neurology in Cambridge, London and Norwich and was awarded a PhD from the University of Cambridge for my research into the genetics of multiple sclerosis in 2003. I have worked in my current role as a neurology consultant since 2008.
