Consultant Cardiologist

MRCP, MA, MD


Specialises in

  • Arrhythmia (Electrophysiology)
  • Heart rhythm disorders
  • Defibrillators and cardiac resynchronization therapy
  • Ablation therapy and atrial fibrillation

I am a Consultant Cardiologist based at The Heart Hospital, part of University College London Hospital and the Royal Free Hospital. I gained my medical degree from Cambridge University in 1999 and pursued my training in Oxford, London and Cambridge, followed by further training in Canada, where I was awarded the Mirium L Burnett Fellowship in Electrophysiology and Devices in Toronto, working with some of the leading experts in the field. I have a strong research record, publishing many peer reviewed articles, and am an invited speaker at international conferences and meetings in the US and Europe. In addition, I completed a Medical Doctorate at Cambridge University, where I led a major clinical trial on improving outcomes for patients needing cardiac resynchronization therapy.

I am available to see patients with a range of cardiac symptoms and disorders including palpitations, heart failure, high blood pressure, fast and slow heart beats, chest pain, blackouts, atrial fibrillation and many others. I regularly perform procedures for the treatment of heart rhythm disorders having performed over a thousand cases. These include the insertion of pacemakers, defibrillators, cardiac resynchronization therapy and all aspects of ablation therapy including the treatment of supraventricular tachycardia, atrial fibrillation, ventricular tachycardia, and other heart rhythm disorders. I make a clear and comprehensive assessment of all patients referred, taking the time to explain any tests and treatment required as well as considering alternative options.
