I am a Consultant Interventional Cardiologist at the East & North Hertfordshire NHS Trust and the Royal Brompton & Harefield NHS Foundation Trust. I completed undergraduate studies in Cambridge and London and underwent training in Interventional Cardiology at St Mary’s Hospital, the Royal Brompton Hospital and the internationally renowned Thoraxcenter in Rotterdam.
I am accredited in Cardiology and General Medicine. My clinical interests include general cardiology with particular expertise in all aspects of coronary intervention (angioplasty) and multi-slice CT angiography.
I currently contribute towards the general and interventional cardiology service in East & North Hertfordshire, including the provision of daytime primary percutaneous coronary intervention for local patients suffering a heart attack. I also participate in the on call rota at the Harefield Heart Attack Centre, one of the busiest units in the country providing 24 hour emergency treatment for patients from Northwest London, Hertfordshire and Bedfordshire as well as participating in the general medical on call rota at QE2 Hospital in Welwyn Garden City.
My research interests are the evaluation of drug-eluting stents and intracoronary imaging (intravascular ultrasound and optical coherence tomography). I have co-authored over 30 research articles and over 40 scientific abstracts presented at major international scientific meetings.
