Professional profile

I am a Consultant Neurologist with particular expertise in the management of headache disorders.
I qualified first in my class from Trinity College, Dublin in 1997 and was awarded the Hudson Gold medal. I became a member of The Royal College of Physicians, Ireland in 1999 before moving to The National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery, Queen Square, to commence my neurology training. While there I was awarded a PhD for my research into headache from the University of London in 2005. I am one of only a handful of neurologists to have a PhD in Headache research and I received the Sir Charles Symmonds Prize from the Association of British Neurologists and The Lord Adrian Prize from the British Society of Clinical Neurophysiology for my work. I have being published in internationally renowned peer review journals and books.
I hold a NHS appointment as a Consultant Neurologist at The National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery, Queen Square and the Whittington Hospital. I have extensive experience in managing all neurological conditions including but not limited to epilepsy, MS and Parkinson’s Disease, episodes of collapse, weakness, sensory symptoms and dizziness.
I am also qualified in clinical neurophysiology – a separate diagnostic specialty that studies the electrical activity of the nervous system.
