I trained in Dermatology in India, United Kingdom and USA. I've since set up Paediatric Dermatology services at University Hospital of Wales after completing a fellowship in Paediatric Dermatology at the University of California in San Diego. I lead a Biologics service for dermatology and manage complex inflammatory skin diseases. I am experienced in performing cutaneous surgery and lasers in children as well as adults.

I am actively involved in research and currently we are conducting trials on efficacy of new molecules in psoriasis. I also have a passion for teaching and I am a programme director for Wales Dermatology Programme.
