I am a consultant cardiologist at West Hertfordshire NHS Trust since 2017, specialising in advanced imaging (Echo, stress echo, Transoesophageal echo and cardiac CT) as well as permanent pacemaker implantation.I completed my core medical training through the North London rotation, obtaining MRCP in 2010. I also pursued an MD (Research) at Imperial College London, which was awarded in 2015. The work was supported by a Research Council fellowship (Dorothy Hodgkin Post Graduate award). This study was as a part of a large population-based cohort and involved Cardiac CT, Nuclear myocardial perfusion imaging and echocardiography which resulted in publications in peer reviewed journals.I completed my core medical training through the North London rotation, obtaining MRCP in 2010.
