Short Bio
I’m a GP and clinical pharmacologist. I see patients in a health centre and teach students about medication. At the moment I am doing a PhD in deprescribing in primary care. My research interests are polypharmacy & deprescribing and specifically long-term antidepressants (for depression and anxiety) and antipsychotics (for NPS in older people with dementia).
