Damian has been at St Hugh’s since 2000 when he came up to read medicine. Qualifying in 2006 he has since worked across the world, serving as a doctor in the British Army. He currently works in neurology at the Nuffield Department of Clinical Neurosciences and is the head of military neurology. His research focuses on neuronal and glial targets for the treatment of traumatic brain injury.
Outside of clinical medicine, Damian is a keen activist for diversity and inclusion. He lectures on the topics of unconscious bias and he helped the Army improve its standing in several employee rankings. At St Hugh’s Damian teaches physiology and pharmacology to both medical and biomedical students, and this year he takes on the additional role of Dean. He hopes to use the role to promote cohesion and harmony for those living and working on site.
