I studied at University College London gaining distinction in my final examination. I was awarded prizes in general academic study, pharmacology and medicine.
I initially worked in the Professorial hepatology and gastroenterology unit at the Royal Free Hospital before moving closer to my family in Dorset and Hampshire. Whilst training as a specialist gastroenterologist I spent six years in four national centres of excellence, including Southampton University and Cambridge University hospitals. I researched into the early detection of and surveillance for oesophageal and colorectal cancers becoming an academic Doctor of Medicine in 2013. In the last year before taking up my Consultant post in the East and North Hertfordshire NHS Trust I practiced at Addenbrooke’s Hospital Cambridge, focusing on endoscopy, inflammatory bowel disease, and diarrhoeal illnesses.
Endoscopy has been a long held interest of mine, with fellowships in Queen Alexandra Hospital Portsmouth, a national centre of excellence and in Tokyo Japan, a world centre of endoscopic excellence. I have published on endoscopic techniques aimed at improving the quality and comfort of procedures in the upper and lower gut.
I am responsible for teaching endoscopy to Gastroenterology trainees and have been a faculty member and lecturer on courses teaching advanced endoscopic techniques.
