Background Information 
Professional profile:
I trained in chest medicine in London, Cambridge and Harvard, USA. I am a former recipient of the prestigious European Respiratory Society COPD research award 2004 and a Wellcome Advanced Clinical Fellowship. I have been a respiratory consultant for over 12 years at Addenbrooke’s Hospital. I was Clinical director of respiratory medicine until November 2012 when I stepped down to concentrate on clinical and research work. I have previously served on national committees (e.g. the British Thoracic Society Standards of Care committee and CCRN). I have a national and international reputation in the treatment and research into mechanisms and novel treatments for lung diseases. I have a special interest in COPD and the rare genetic form of emphysema due to alpha-1 antitrypsin deficiency. I run a busy respiratory clinic for general respiratory complaints and conditions.
Personal profile:

The highlight of my life outside work is to spend time with immediate and other family members. I am keen on a variety of sports such as cricket, golf, tennis and rugby and am an enthusiastic gardener.
