Overview

We are interested in the aetiology and pathophysiological mechanisms that underpin movement disorders, particularly childhood- and adult-onset Dystonia. We are using a combination of epidemiology, imaging, invertebrate and cellular models to gain insight into these disorders, why they occur and the pathways that are likely disrupted. We hope that a more detailed understanding of these mechanisms will help in the development of future novel therapies.

My work is support by the Medical Research Council (Clinician-Scientist Fellowship), the Dystonia Medical Research Foundation, The Dystonia Society and the Life Sciences Research Network Wales.

Supervision

I am interested in supervising PhD students, interested in studying dystonia, in the areas of:

  • Clinical phenotyping
  • Genetics of complex disease
  • Invertebrate and in vitro models
