Professional profile

I completed my medical training and subsequent dermatology specialisation in Manchester where I developed an interest in inflammatory dermatoses including psoriasis.

During this time I also completed a postgraduate diploma in medical education. Following completion of training I undertook an advanced medical dermatology fellowship in Toronto, Canada. During this period I gained expertise in treating a range of medical dermatological disease including psoriasis, eczema, connective tissue disease and blistering disorders.

I have now been working in Leeds for the last couple of years and provide a clinical service covering medical dermatology (psoriasis, connective tissue diseases and cutaneous lymphoma), skin cancer, hair and nail conditions and general dermatology.

I also oversee undergraduate dermatology training for the University of Leeds.
