Guarantors of Brain Research Fellow
I am a research fellow in the Plasticity Group. My primary interest is in the investigation of potential strategies for improving rehabilitation after stroke and brain injury. This includes investigating the role of sleep in learning and recovery, findings ways to improve sleep after stroke and novel treatments such as brain stimulation.
Our collaborators include
- Dr Anton Pick and Dr David Henderson Slater from the Oxford Centre for Enablement (Oxford University Hospitals NHS Trust)
- Mrs Emma Garratt from the Oxfordshire Stroke Rehabilitation Unit (Oxford Health NHS Trust)
- Professor Helen Dawes from Exeter University
- Mrs Rachel Buckingham and Mr Tim Theologis from the Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre (Oxford University Hospitals NHS Trust)
