I graduated from the University College in London in 2005, and then went on to train in medicine in London at the Royal Free and St George’s Hospital. I gained a PhD in cognitive neuroscience at Imperial College London and continued my post-doctoral research at Cambridge. I completed my clinical neurology training at Cambridge, the National Hospital for Neurology and Neuro-surgery, and Charring Cross Hospital. In 2018, I was appointed consultant at Cambridge University Hospital where I currently practice.
I have an expertise in epilepsy, cognitive neurology, headache, movement disorder, and acute neurological emergencies. I am also a specialist in adult epilepsy and the neurological consequences of brain tumours. I am actively involved in teaching medical students and organise the epilepsy special study module and the clinicopathological conference for undergraduates at Cambridge University. In addition to this, I am a co-author of a textbook on neuro-oncology and am involved in the research of epilepsy, and the diagnosis and management of brain tumours and headaches.

I completed my PhD research studying the consequences of traumatic brain injury and followed this with a post-doctoral study looking at the brain changes associated with neurodegenerative diseases. I am now a full time clinical consultant neurologist but am co-investigator on the MAST study looking at the treatment of epilepsy following traumatic brain injury and lead investigator on the SHIPPING study looking at the features of headaches that predict a serious underlying cause (e.g. brain tumours).
