I lead a team working to maintain restore respiratory function following neurological trauma and disease. The central theme of the lab is to determine the mechanisms and physiological processes which cause respiratory and locomotor dysfunction following severe disorders, such as spinal cord injury. We investigate new methods to recover this activity in order to aid clinical translation of treatment strategies, aiding patients.

As such, we aim to:

  1. Use innovative techniques to determine the physiological deficits and mechanisms of injury/disease
  2. Develop and assess novel treatments for pre-clinical functional benefits

I advocate for diversity at King's College London and am the Race Equality Champion of my Department.
