Biography

I spend 80 percent of my time on research and 20 percent on clinical care (general neurology and multiple sclerosis) as a consultant neurologist. I have developed expertise in the diagnosis, treatment and symptomatic management of MS patients through the MS clinical care physician fellowship awarded by National Multiple Sclerosis Society.

Research summary

We study bioenergetics, in particular the role of mitochondria in the pathophysiology of neurodegeneration, demyelination and remyelination failure with a focus on progressive multiple sclerosis.
