Research interests

During my Academic Clinical Fellowship, I will learn machine learning methods as applied to healthcare. I will evaluate the use of these techniques in the diagnosis and prognosis of Parkinson's disease using routinely collected NHS data.

My previous research experience has included manipulation of large genomic datasets (by way of a genome-wide association study in the vividness of visual imagination) and the clinical evaluation of the neurological features of a rare form of monogenic diabetes.
