I completed my surgical training in London, under the tutelage of some the most world-renowned neurosurgeons at The National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery, Hurstwood Park, King’s College Hospital and St George’s Hospital. I gained international experience visiting the Centre Hôspitalier Sainte-Anne, Paris, France.

I am an Honorary Senior Lecturer in the School of Medicine, Faculty of Medicine and Health at University of Leeds. At Neuroregeneration Laboratory, Harvard Medical School, I spent five months working on stem cell transplant and neuroprotective strategies for the treatment of Parkinson’s disease (2002). At Neurodegeneration Laboratory, Cardiff, I won a grant from the Welcome Trust to investigate factors influencing age-related neurodegeneration during summer vacation (2000).
