I am the lead for paediatric neurosurgery at Southampton Children’s Hospital after working at Great Ormond Street Hospital for two and a half years.
I studied at the University of London and was awarded my undergraduate degree in 1997. Since then I have undertaken neurosurgical training in London, as well as completing two international fellowships and a PhD in 2007. My areas of interest include all aspects of hydrocephalus including normal pressure hydrocephalus, idiopathic intracranial hypertension and Chiari 1 malformation. I also have an active pituitary surgery practice and have expertise in neuro-endoscopy.
