I have experience as a Consultant in Old Age Psychiatry in various NHS memory clinic settings. I was also the Clinical Lead of a UK private online memory clinic having a special interest for dementia prevention interventions that reduce lifestyle-related dementia risk factors.
I am a Clinical Teacher & an Ethics and Law Tutor at the Centre for Psychiatry of the Faculty of Medicine from Imperial College London which is ranked 6th in the QS World University Ranking for 2023. In 2019 I was awarded by Imperial College London, for my significant contribution to teaching, one of the three funded places to attend the prestigious Annual Intensive Course on Medical Ethics.
Moreover, I completed a Postdoctoral Fellowship in medical ethics and palliative care with a special interest in patient autonomy and a PhD under international cotutelle with the New York University School of Medicine on the concept of retrogenesis which opens new ways for understanding Alzheimer’s disease. I also successfully completed a prestigious Elective in Psychiatry at the Oxford University Medical School and graduated with an Intercalated Bachelor of Science (BSc) Honours in Neuroscience at University College London, being awarded the Health Foundation Intercalated BSc Award.
In 2019 I was the only Psychiatrist invited to be an honorary speaker at the prestigious 17th Aesthetic & Anti-Aging Medicine World Congress organized in Monaco, Monte Carlo under the High Patronage of S.A.S. le Prince Albert II de Monaco, where I was awarded a certificate of appreciation.
In 2021 I have been a keynote speaker at the Alzheimer’s Show Digital Hub which is a very popular series of webinars in the UK where the family members of the persons with cognitive impairment are also encouraged to attend so that they can learn how to help their loved ones.
