I am a consultant old age psychiatrist with Oxford Health NHS Foundation Trust. Related to my work with inpatients, I have an interest in the management of late life depression and the use of non-invasive brain stimulation in the management of mood disorders. I was a specialist adviser on tDCS to the NICE Interventional Procedures Programme and am currently a member of the NICE Depression in adults (update) guideline development group.


I have an interest in psychological treatments with older people and am currently working on the local BOLD study of cognitive bias in late life depression and the FACTOID study of acceptance and commitment therapy for older people with treatment-resistant generalised anxiety disorder  (  CI Dr Rebecca Gould, UCL).


I teach medical students in Oxford and am Internal Specialty Advisor for the psychiatry course. I am a College Adviser and member of Green Templeton College.
