I am research active in the topic of movement disorders, currently investigator in the PD STAT trial (statins in the treatment of Parkinson disease). I am generally interested in the treatment of movement disorders. The new trial with immunotherapy for Parkinson disease is in preparation. This is a completely new concept of treatment of this neurodegenerative disease and that is why I am so excited about it. I am preparing a study with new COMT inhibitor opicapone in treatment of Parkinson disease focusing on safety and efficacy in erderly population.

I do my best to keep a healthy life style, I go running and visit the gym regularly. I love travelling and enjoy exploring new countries and cities with my partner. As a newcomer, I am still dazzled by the beauty of British historical cities, villages and countryside.
