Research Interests

I’m helping an ambitious team at KCH/SLaM to set up a multicentre prospective observational study that involves seven DBS clinics across the UK to investigate effects of deep brain stimulation (DBS) on impulsive behaviours (ICBs) in Parkinson’s disease (PD). We are interested to investigate ICBs impact on patients and carers’ quality of life, and also to detect any potential predictors and risk factors for worsening or developing ICBs after DBS in PD.
