  • Biography

    Following undergraduate medical training at Glasgow University, including a BSc (Hons) in Neuroscience, I undertook Neurology training in Royal Perth Hospital, Australia initially, returning to the UK to obtain a PhD from Cambridge University, looking into brain metabolism and blood flow changes in ischaemia using novel MRI and PET imaging techniques.

    I completed clinical Neurology training in Newcastle then obtained a Multiple Sclerosis Fellowship at the VU Medical centre Amsterdam under Professors Chris Polman and Fred Barkof. I became a Consultant Neurologist and Honorary Clinical Lecturer with a special interest in M.S. at the Royal Victoria Infirmary, Newcastle in December 2009 where I am involved in numerous MS trials and developing my own research interests in MS.
