I am an Oxford trained Associate Professor and Consultant Rheumatologist with extensive experience in all areas of rheumatology at Spire Leeds Hospital and Leeds Teaching Hospitals Trust. I have a specialist interest in the early diagnosis and treatment of inflammatory joint disease, including the use of ultrasound and MRI. I am an internationally recognised expert in rheumatoid arthritis risk factors and early diagnosis.

I was born and raised in Warwickshire and educated at Oxford University, where I won a scholarship and took a first class honours with double distinction, achieved by only a handful of students. I was awarded a prestigious academic clinical fellowship to train in general medicine at the world renowned John Radcliffe and Churchill hospitals, Oxford. I have spent the last decade specialising in rheumatology, working at two European centres of excellence, Oxford and Leeds. I first underwent general rheumatology training on the Oxford rheumatology rotation and then moved to Leeds for further specialist training and research.

I developed a research interest in the early diagnosis and management of inflammatory arthritis. Alongside Paul Emery I currently oversee a world leading research programme in this area at the Leeds Institute of Rheumatic and Musculoskeletal Medicine.

I publish regularly in the leading rheumatology journals, and lecture nationally and internationally. I am member of two international task forces on rheumatoid arthritis, convener of one. I sit on national committees for inflammatory arthritis. I have edited three journal editions on early arthritis and am a member of the rheumatology question writing committee for the Royal College of Physicians.
