Background Information 
Professional profile:

After completing medical school in Cardiff in 1997, I trained in cardiology and general medicine in Wales and Edinburgh until 2006 and during this period I spent 2 years as a British Heart Foundation research fellow at Cardiff University. I undertook research into the biochemistry of blood vessel function in heart disease and diabetes, for which I was awarded my MD. I then completed training in medical biochemistry and metabolic medicine in Cardiff and also undertook training in obesity management at the Imperial Weight Centre, London.

I see patients who have high cholesterol, or have other risk factors for heart disease and stroke such as hypertension or a strong family history of vascular disease. I have an interest in the evaluation of individuals who do not tolerate standard lipid-lowering therapies.  I also maintain other clinical metabolic services in nutrition and prevention of kidney stones. I am involved in clinical biochemistry laboratory services and ensuring that individuals have a clear understanding of the use of the wide variety of laboratory tests that are available, including genetic tests for inherited high cholesterol.

Personal profile:

I was born in South Wales and I enjoy hiking, running, skiing, cooking and travel. I am attempting to rejuvenate my interest in playing the piano and foreign languages.
