My research interests are in motivational deficits in neurodegenerative disorders, particularly Parkinson's disease. I aim to explore the mechanisms underlying apathy and to investigate the effects of dopamine in impulsive and apathetic decision making. I am also keen to investigate the motor and physiological consequences of apathy using a range of modalities, with the goal of developing objective clinical metrics of motivation in neurodegenerative disorders.
I have a strong interest in the use of technology in medicine and neuroscience and use a variety of techniques in my research. This includes behavioural computer based tasks, biosensors, eye tracking and Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI).
My clinical interests are in cognitive neurology and movement disorders and I am actively involved in medical education and teaching.
