Dr Diego Kaski is a Consultant Neurologist at the University College London Hospital and the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery. He holds and Honorary Senior Lecturer at University College London, and a Senior Clinical Research Fellow at Imperial College London, where he completed a PhD investigating the cortical mechanisms underlying human spatial navigation. He set up and directed an acute vertigo service in Charing Cross Hospital, London between 2009-2012.

He has continued to develop strong clinical links with the department of Neurology at Charing Cross Hospital, and also with the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery, London. His current interests include the application of imaging and behavioural paradigms to understand the cognitive mechanism of human gait dysfunction, and non-invasive brain stimulation techniques to modulate gait in humans.

He has ongoing collaborative research links within the Division of Brain Sciences at Imperial College London, and with the Institute of Neurology, University College London.
