I have a specialist interest in functional neurosurgery, image guided surgery and surgery for brain and spinal tumours. In addition to my clinical work, I am actively involved in research, especially in developing novel treatments for brain tumours and for Parkinson's disease. I am the deputy lead for neurosciences Research Advisory Group at King's College Hospital, the President of the British Society for Stereotactic and Functional Neurosurgery, Chairman of the Surgical Group of the International Parkinson and Movement Disorder Society, and Lead for the Genomics England programme for brain tumours. I have published over 400 peer review papers, abstracts and book chapters and I was voted 'Clinician of The Year' by the Brain Tumour Charity in 2018.
