About Me


I'm an Academic Doctor at the John Radcliffe Hospital, University of Oxford. I trained in medicine at Bristol (clinical) and Oxford (academic) specialising in neurosurgery, forensic psychiatry, and rare diseases.

Free time

I love playing rugby, cooking, and trekking in the wilderness. I spend my free time building electronic brains, studying fallen civilizations and wearing Icelandic sweaters. Fun fact? I can order pizza in 10 languages, including 3 dead ones.

Supporting rare disease charity

I'm happy to provide advice and help you out - completely free of charge.
But if you feel I helped you in any way, consider donating to the Oxford Neurological Society. You can do this easily through our booking system. It will go towards funding young scientists' research on rare neurological diseases and support bright students from underpriviliged backgrounds.

I write mainly for medical jourunals and specialist textbooks, but you should check out my recent baby: "Diseses of the Brain" - it's an easy-to-read book about interesting aspects of clinical psychiatry. I think you'll really enjoy it. For full list of my publications, visit:
