I am a consultant ophthalmologist at Addenbrooke's Hospital, Cambridge. My clinical practice comprises general ophthalmology with sub-specialty interests in cataract surgery, vitreoretinal surgery (including retinal detachment, vitreous haemorrhage and macular disorders), and medical retina disorders (including macular degeneration and diabetic retinopathy).

My advanced sub-specialty training included a clinical fellowship in vitreoretinal surgery and a clinical fellowship in medical retina disorders
