I am an academic physiotherapist with research grant income from both UK and European funders (£13.5 million in the last 3 years; 4.6 million as lead applicant). I have an interest in the development and evaluation of non-pharmacological interventions across the life span. I have published more than 80 primary research publications (and three book chapters) primarily in the topics relevant to physiotherapy and neurosciences. I was awarded an NIHR post-doctoral fellowship in 2013 and used this opportunity to progress my formal training in trials methodology leading to a Diploma in Clinical Trials from LSHTM. I have led a series of multi-centre observational and interventional studies related to physical activity, cognitive training and mobility in neurodegenerative disease, many of which informed the publication of the first evidenced based international physiotherapy clinical guidelines for Huntington's Disease (HD). I am currently chief investigator of the LEAP-MS study which is evaluating a co-designed online blended physiotherapy intervention and of the DOMINO-HD European consortium which is exploring the role of modifiable and non-modifiable (genetic) factors in HD progression. I am a member of the NIHR CTU and HTA funding panels and a frequent reviewer of grant applications across a range of funding bodies.
