    Educated at Belfast Royal Academy, Oxford University and King’s College Hospital London, I trained in paediatrics in London and subsequently Newcastle, where I also began my research career with a Wellcome Clinical Training Fellowship in the Mitochondrial Research Group.

    I continued my research and clinical training (MRC Clinician Scientist Fellowship), being appointed Honorary Consultant Paediatric Neurologist in 2006 and, following a DoH/HEFCE Fellowship award, Clinical Senior Lecturer in 2008.
