I trained as a neuroradiologist in Manchester. This involved adult diagnostic neuroradiology, paediatric neuroradiology, ENT and head and neck radiology and interventional neuroradiology.

I did a visiting fellowship in ear, nose and throat and head and neck radiology at University of North Carolina and a diagnostic neuroradiology fellowship at Rush Presbyterian University, St. Luke's Medical Centre, Chicago.

I completed my PhD from the University of Manchester on advanced imaging in neurovascular diseases, which involved brain tumours, dementia and depression.

I also treat brain ateriovenous malformations, dural vascular malformations, tumour embolisations, spinal embolisations, ENT vascular interventions, spinal vascular and non vascular interventions including vertebroplasties and kyphoplasties. I also treat AVMs, dural vascular malformations perform brain tumour.
