About the Speaker

I am interested in treatment-resistant depression and dementia.  Clinically, I lead the Oxfordshire ECT and ketamine services and run a memory clinic.My main focus is developing policy and monitoring arrangements for rapidly acting antidepressants such as ketamine.  I led the international academic conference on Ketamine and Related Compounds for Psychiatric Disorders in March 2018.  I work on ways of optimizing the effects of ketamine and am local PI for trials of rapidly acting antidepressants.
