      Personal profile:

      I play badminton regularly and have started playing cricket for a local club after an eight year gap (very rusty). I love long distance running and have completed two 10K races, both completed under an hour and simultaneously raising money for Macmillan.

      I am one of the lead surgeons in a charity ‘Out to Africa’. I travel out to Zambia to teach and spread my passion of keyhole surgery to young and budding surgeons in Zambia.

      Above all, I love spending time with my family and especially my seven year old son, who loves running and swimming. I am looking forward to a 3K run together with him.

      For me, nothing beats an evening in watching a movie with my family. And enjoy listening to a variety of music including jazz, Bollywood and Indian classical when they fall asleep!
