After completion of training under the tutelage of Prof Kerry Mills at King's College London, I joined University Hospital Southampton as cosultant in 2006.
I have wideranging experience in clinical neurophysiology procedures including electroencephalography (EEG), evoked potentials (EPs) and nerve conduction studies, as well as routine/specialised electromyography (EMG).
My specialist interests include motor unit physiology, direct muscle stimulation, single fibre EMG and transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS).
Areas of interest
Nerve Conduction Studies (NCS), routine and complex Electromyography (EMG); single fibre EMG (sfEMG); Electroencephalography (EEG); Ambulatory EEG; Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS); Visual, auditory and somatosensory evoked potentials (VEPs, BAEPs, SEPs)
Current NHS consultant posts held
Consultant Clinical Neurophysiologist
Wessex Neurological Centre,
