Current research involves collaboration with the University of Sheffield in imaging brain tumours at 3Tesla to assess early predictive signs of malignant transformation of low grade glioma.


Neurosurgical Oncology: I am Lead clinician of the South Yorkshire Neuro Oncology MDT. I am chair of the DOH rare tumour group. I introduced 3 dimensional real time intraoperative brain scanning with high resolution ultrasound to the UK – a rapid a inexpensive practical alternative to intraoperative MRI scanning.
