I am a paediatrician and adolescent medicine physician, currently appointed as senior staff specialist in the Adolescent Medicine Unit, Westmead Hospital. My specialty is in the area of behavioural and developmental paediatrics, with clinical and research interests in Attention Deficit Disorder with Hyperactivity (ADHD), as well as the Autistic Spectrum Disorders, and Learning difficulties / developmental delay. After completing my training as a Paediatrician, and obtaining the FRACP, I went on to complete a PhD. in “Medical Expertise in the Management of ADHD” at the Children’s Hospital Education Research Institute (CHERI), Westmead Children’s hospital.  During this time I have also been working in the Hawkesbury region, building up a large clinical practice in ADHD, Autism, and Learning difficulties, while working as a VMO general paediatrician at Hawkesbury hospital.  I continue to have a private clinical practice at Rouse Hill, aimed at seeing younger patients with ADHD, Autism, learning difficulties and developmental delay.


I have taken up this staff specialist position at the Adolescent Medicine unit, Westmead Hospital, in order to pursue my research and clinical interests in ADHD and related disorders.  I am also involved in running the eating disorders unit at this hospital.  I hope to be able to make a valuable contribution to the Adolescent Medical Unit at Westmead Hospital in the years to come.
