I am an Australian-born adult neurologist with a specialist interest in acute neurological disease and in neuromuscular disorders. My basic medical training was in Germany and in the UK. I was accredited as a Neurologist in 1992 specialised in Neurological Intensive Care and in Neuromuscular Disease. I was Director of the Neurological Critical Care Unit at the University of Dresden.
In 2001 I returned to the UK as a consultant neurologist at the University Hospitals of Leicester. I founded the Special Interest Group on Critical Care Neurology in the Association of British Neurologists, and continue to provide specialist postgraduate training.
I am now based at the Cambridge University Hospitals Neurocritical Care Unit, with NHS outpatient clinics at Addenbrookes Hospital and Ipswich Hospital, and I run a specialist clinic for adult Genetic Muscle Disease at the RJAH Orthopaedic Hospital in Oswestry and am a member of the editorial board of the journal “Neuromuscular Diseases”. I also run an outpatient clinic at Woodland Hospital.
Personal profile: I was born in Hobart, Tasmania but have lived in Europe and the UK since 1972. I am married (my wife is also a neurologist) with 4 children. My main private interests are outdoor activities and equestrian sports, in which the whole family are active.
