Research and Teaching
My main research interest is the diagnosis and classification of neurodegenerative dementias. I also collaborate on neuroimaging studies of dementia, which was the subject of my MD thesis. I co-supervise a PhD student studying the progressive aphasias. I am Principal investigator for a number of studies involving neurodegenerative and infectious diseases at Salford Royal Hospital.

I spend one day per week teaching 4th year medical students at SRFT. I have delivered expert patient teaching sessions, seminars, teaching clinics and facilitated PBL sessions.
I have been involved in updating the University of Manchester Mind and Movement module for medical undergraduates. The aim is to improve the emphasis placed on underlying science and its application to clinical scenarios. I have recorded online lectures and provided other web based material for medical students at the university.
I have written a number of 4th year medical student OSCE stations.
I have authored an ‘iBook of neurological signs’ to complement the medical student curriculum and that is freely available for iPad users.
I have lectured on the University of Manchester Speech and Language undergraduate course, providing a module on clinical neurology (4 two hour lectures) and have written a set of essay assignment questions for the course.
I have set up an MRCP part 1 revision course with a colleague. This course has been running successfully 3 times per year for 6 years.
I take SHO groups for PACES teaching sessions in SRFT and have been a tutor on RCP teaching days in the region.
I am course director for PACES courses in Manchester and London.
I have recorded a number of online lectures, practical demonstrations and ‘podcasts’ for an MRCP revision company.
I have provided teaching to the MSc Neuroimaging students at the University of Manchester.
