I am a Consultant Cardiologist and Electrophysiologist at the Morriston Cardiac Centre and Spire Hospital Cardiff. I qualified with honours from Birmingham University Medical School in 2000 and rotated through various Glasgow and Birmingham teaching hospitals before returning to University in 2003 to undertake research funded by the British Heart Foundation. I was awarded a PhD from Birmingham University in 2007. I was awarded a clinical training and research position at St Thomas’ Hospital, London where I completed my sub-speciality training in heart rhythm treatment (electrophysiology). Towards the end of my training I was awarded a two year advanced electrophysiology fellowship at the renowned Henri Mondor Hospital in Paris and was appointed as a Consultant in 2014.
I am trained in all aspects of cardiac arrhythmia management including catheter ablation in particular ablation therapy for atrial fibrillation, ventricular tachycardia, supraventricular tachycardia and Wolf-Parkinson-White syndrome, pacemaker/defibrillator implantation, cardiac resynchronisation therapy and left atrial appendage occlusion. My specialist interest is ablation of complex arrhythmias especially atrial fibrillation and life-threatening ventricular tachycardia.
I have presented at several national and international conferences and published numerous scientific papers. I have received several awards and media recognition for my research and clinical work.
