Professional profile

I am senior lecturer and honorary consultant at UCL Hospitals, London. I am jointly qualified in clinical neurophysiology and biophysics. I travel to Leicester once a fortnight to undertake tests in clinical neurophysiology, which are EEG (brainwave recording) EMG and nerve conduction studies (tests of muscle and nerve function.)

I use the latest electronic equipment, all tests are reported immediately and available electronically. On request EEG's can be performed by my technician at other times with rapid reporting over the Internet. As well as being a consultant at UCLH, I run an inter-disciplinary research group, developing new methods of measuring brain and nerve function. Thus I have the latest electronic equipment and have an interest in telemedicine.

Clinical Interests

Special Clinical Interests: Electroencephalography (EEG) nerve conduction studies, electromyography (EMG), repetitive strain injury (RSI).
