Professional profile

I started my medical career at Edinburgh University and graduated in 1998 with an Honours degree in Medicine and a first class intercalated BSc in Respiratory Pathology. Since then I have served as a Medical Officer with the Royal Navy including specialist interests in diving medicine, submarine medicine and a tour of Afghanistan.

I specialised in Respiratory Medicine in Edinburgh before moving to Leicester to complete an MD in exercise asthma in elite athletes, a topic on which I have published extensively. I am a medical advisor to the world class performance programme for British Swimming and have managed asthma for a number of national and international athletes, especially in the run up to London 2012 where I provided Sports Medicine services at the Aquatics Centre for the Olympic games.

My interests are asthma, exercise asthma, occupational aspects of lung disease, pleural disease and interventional bronchoscopy.
