Personal profile


I have a joint appointment as the Director of Stroke Services at Alfred Health and as adjunct Professor of Stroke Medicine at the Central Clinical School. Previously I have been a full time Consultant Stroke Physician and Honorary Senior Lecturer working in the Department of Clinical Neurosciences at St George’s Hospital in London.


I am the chair of the Australian Stroke Data (AuSDaT) monitoring committee and the Australian Stroke Registry (AuSCR) quality improvement committee. I have an active role sitting on the Safer Care Victoria stroke INSIGHT and Re-perfusion committees and I am an elected committee member of the Stroke Society of Australasia. I adjudicate outcomes for the ASPirin in Reducing Events in the Elderly (ASPREE) study and chair the stroke adjudication committee for the STAtins in Reducing Events in the Elderly (STAREE). 


I have been an investigator for more than 40 randomized controlled stroke trials. I value the perspective and expertise of others to inform my work, having formed close collaborations with other Central Clinical School researchers Professors Natasha Lannin and Robert Medcalf. 


Outside of stroke service quality improvement, my published research interests include posterior circulation stroke, novel interventions for motor recovery after stroke and understanding the needs of stroke carers. I have co-authored the Oxford University Press Handbook of Stroke Medicine
