I obtained my bachelor degree in Medicine and Surgery from Leeds University and then became a Member of the Royal College of Physicians in 2001 and a Fellow in 2013.

I spent three years as a clinical lecturer in stroke medicine at Kings College Hospital London, where I undertook hyperacute stroke training, obtaining a CCT in Stroke Medicine.
