I am a Consultant Neurosurgeon in Birmingham, UK. I work at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital, which is an NHS and military hospital serving a regional, national and international population. It is one of the leading hospitals in Europe with an international reputation for quality of care, information technology, clinical training and research and it is closely linked with the University of Birmingham. I trained in Neurosurgery in Greece and UK and had subspecialty training in neuro-oncology and skull base surgery in Canada. My practice includes a wide range of diseases within cranial neurosurgery with a focus in brain tumour surgery including endoscopic operations, surgery for disorders of CSF and neurotrauma. I have a master's degree in clinical research from Newcastle University. I also hold a postgraduate certificate degree in global health from the University of Toronto and I aspire to incorporate a trajectory of global health work in my career pathway. I am currently involved in a project with Medical Aid for Palestinians, a charity that works for the health and dignity of Palestinians, which aims to improve the neurosurgical services in Gaza.
