I am an NIHR-funded Academic Clinical Lecturer in Neurology at the Department of Clinical and Movement Neurosciences at The National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery & the Institute of Neurology, UCL. My main interest is in Parkinson’s disease with an emphasis on how metabolism impacts neurodegeneration. I am co-investigator on the Exenatide-PD3 and Exenatide-MSA clinical trials and am a visiting scientist in the Gandhi Lab, where I am exploring mechanisms underlying the effects of Glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) agonists in models of Parkinson’s disease.
