My current role

I am the lead functional neurosurgeon in the department, specialising in the surgical management of movement disorders and epilepsy. I also have a broad general neurosurgical practice, including spinal surgery and trauma.

My research interests include novel treatments for Parkinson's disease, such as gene therapy and stem cell transplant surgery.

Previous history

I studied English Literature at Cambridge University before qualifying in medicine at Sheffield University Medical School in 2000.

I trained in neurosurgery in the North Thames region, working at the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery, the Royal Free and the Royal London.

After completing neurosurgical training I undertook an 18 month fellowship in functional neurosurgery and King's College Hospital before taking up my consultant post in Cambridge.
