I am a plastic, reconstructive and hand surgeon and became a consultant at Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust in 2017. My areas of special interest are children's hand surgery and major nerve injury, in addition to general plastic and hand surgery.

I graduated with honours from Leicester University before undertaking speciality plastic surgery training in the Yorkshire and Humber region. I then progressed to fellowship training in microsurgery in Leeds, followed by paediatric plastic surgery at the Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto, Canada.
