I am a Consultant in Adult and Paediatric Ear, Nose and Throat Surgery. I was appointed as a consultant in Bristol in 2014. I undertook my medical training at the University of Oxford before completing my surgical training in the Southwest.
In addition to general ENT surgery, I have a specialist interest in adult and paediatric otology (conditions of the ear), including; hearing loss, vertigo and dizziness, tinnituts, hearing implants and lateral skull base surgery.
As part of my advanced specialist training, I undertook a clinical and research fellowship in Melbourne, Australia. This focused on the management of complex ear disease, cochlear implantation and lateral skull base surgery. The University of Melbourne and Royal Victorian Eye and Ear Hospital are world renown for the development of cochlear implants. I completed research projects on the effect of hearing implantation on cochlear mechanics and novel bone-anchored hearing aids technology.
In 2016, I was elected to the council of the British Society of Otology.
In addition to my clinical work, I have an interest in ENT research and Teaching. I am an Honorary Lecturer and Research Fellow at the University of Bristol, School of Social and Community Medicine.
