Bio

My legal training is very important to me. Whilst I became physically disabled due to my meningitis in 2007, I have been able to complete by distance learning my LLB(Hons) and LLM (with Commendation) from BPP Law School and College of Law respectively in 2009 and 2011 respectively. My LLM was in international professional commercial/corporate legal practice.

I am very hard working, but I especially enjoy working in teams. For example, I have established the BPP Legal Awareness Society for fellow MBA students at BPP Business School. I was the first person in my cohort to be awarded the MBA from earlier this year.

I used to have an alcoholic dependence syndrome. However, since my coma due to meningitis, I have been in complete recovery for over five years. I have successfully nearly completed the Legal Practice Course at BPP Law School, having been allowed to enrol as a student with the Solicitors Regulation Authority.

I am just about to publish a book on wellbeing in dementia.

Work

2009 – 2011

Research Consultant

Alzheimer's Society (Head Office) , United Kingdom
  • I was simply a researcher, hired on a short-term freelance basis for the Alzheimer's Society. I researched the entire medical evidence base for their publications, meaning that the Society was in a position to be awarded the NHS Information Standard. I then successfully worked in a small team for the Society to become an Accreditated Body under OFQUAL/QCF successfully in the summer 2011. The Alzheimer's Society decided later not to become an Accreditated Body, which could have promoted the education of dementia in the UK despite its prominence in the Prime Minister's Dementia Challenge, as it was not in keeping with their plans.
2008 – 2009
(Sep – Sep)

Volunteer and Researcher (for 1 month only)

British Lung Foundation (Head Office) , United Kingdom
  • I annotated much of the leaflets and booklets of the British Lung Foundation, with a view to researching carefully the evidence base for the information given on respiratory disease.
  • I set up a system in which to perform this procedure to ensure regulatory compliance with the NHS Information Standard which is run by CAPITA.
  • Also, I established a systematic mechanism for collection of information about the provision of respiratory services in England, with close relation to how the British Lung Foundation can target its charity services particularly in Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD). Finally, I set up the research for a campaign to raise awareness in a condition called Obstructive Sleep Apnoea (OSA).
2004 – 2005
(May – May)

Post-doctoral Non-clinical Research Fellow

Institute of Neurology UCL Queen Square , United Kingdom
  • I conducted various postal questionnaire studies on idiopathic Parkinson's disease based at the Sobell Department for Motor Neuroscience and Movement Disorders.
  • This programme of research involved designing carefully studies of quality-of-life and wellbeing, fear-of-falling, and freezing-of-gait in patients with Parkinson's disease. Our research team, with me doing the central work, collected the data, completed the analyses, and wrote up the results. The results have been published and discussed in the international peer-reviewed journal Movement Disorders, and have received very good feeedback.
