Interests

I am working with Roger Barker on Parkinson's disease dementia (PDD) and dementia with Lewy bodies (DLB). We are finding new ways to model the dementia associated with α-synucleinopathies (PDD and DLB) in the hope that new therapies can be better tested before clinical trials. I also see people with both PDD and DLB and aim to help both characterise the cognitive and motor problems they face and help with their overall care.
