    Research Interests 

    Brain and vascular imaging in stroke medicine. Our aim is to utilise imaging techniques to illuminate the biological mechanisms of stroke to help reveal new therapeutic targets.


    I am a Consultant Physician at Addenbrookes Cambridge where I am part of the team looking after people who have had a stroke. I supervise trainees for PhD’s in the stroke medicine research group within the Clinical Neurosciences department and teach clinical students. I will be teaching undergraduates on the ‘MODA’ course.
