Professional profile

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 3 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.

My research interest has been in ethnic differences in cortisol secretion and their relationship to vascular impairment.

In 2009 I was appointed as a Consultant Stroke Physician in Cardiff & Vale University Health Board, where I have taken the lead to develop daily TIA clinics, early supportive discharge (ESD) and mechanical thrombectomy service for stroke patients.
