I completed specialist training in cardiology in Oxford with specialist interventional fellowships at the Hammersmith Hospital, London and a year in Milan, Italy at the world-famous San Raffaele Scientific Institute during which time I was awarded an MSc in interventional cardiology.

I was awarded a DPhil (PhD) from Balliol College, University of Oxford funded by a British Heart Foundation Clinical Research Fellowship. During this time, I was also the recipient of a British Heart Foundation travel fellowship to the Broad Institute (MIT) and Harvard Medical School (Boston, USA).

I was appointed Visiting Professor at the University of Reading in January 2020. I have also been awarded Fellowship of the Royal College of Physicians (FRCP) in 2020.

In 2017 I was awarded Fellowship of the European Society of Cardiology (FESC) and appointed Consultant Cardiologist between the Royal Berkshire Hospital, Reading and the Hammersmith Hospital, London and in 2018 appointed Honorary Senior Clinical Lecturer at Imperial College London.

I am the winner of numerous prizes including the President’s Gold Medal in cardiology from the Royal Society of Medicine and investigator prizes from the European Society of Cardiology (ESC) and American Heart Association (AHA).

I am an author of over 100 publications including original papers, editorials, review articles and book chapters and am regularly invited to speak at both national and international conferences and act as a reviewer for a number of international medical journals.
