My current role
I became a consultant neurologist with a subspecialty interest in multiple sclerosis (MS) in 2015, working in the disease modifying therapy (DMT) service at CUH.
My main role is as a general and MS specialist neurologist at Peterborough city hospital, and I am also actively engaged in undergraduate teaching in medicine.
I graduated from Cambridge University Medical School in 2003, then trained as a junior doctor in London and East Anglia, completing my neurology training in 2015. Along the way, I received a joint clinical research training Fellowship from the MRC and MS society to undertake a PhD, which I completed in Cambridge in 2012. I studied the process of human oligodendrocyte development from stem cells, aiming to learn more about the mechanisms that might promote repair in MS.
My practice now is clinically focused, with a significant emphasis on medical student teaching. In 2023, I graduated with a masters in medical education, also from the University of Cambridge.
