Professional profile

I have been a consultant cardiologist for 3 years, having spent over a decade developing an international research portfolio. I have worked at top London and US hospitals which has given me a high degree of experience managing all general cardiology conditions, with a recognised expertise in coronary artery disease risk assessment and prevention.

Aside from this I also specialise in advanced cholesterol management, hypertension, chest pain assessment, valvular heart disease, neurological and autonomic mediated cardiovascular diseases and secondary prevention of those with established heart disease.

In my NHS practice I run a very large general cardiology outpatient clinic and provide in-patient care for acutely unwell cardiology patients. Recently I have personally developed and co-lead a large CVD prevention service at the Bart’s Heart Centre, one of the largest cardiac units in Europe. In my imaging role I have European accreditation in advanced echocardiography and US certification as a cardiac CT specialist.

In addition to my clinical work, I am a senior research fellow at UCL and am one of only a handful of British Heart Foundation Clinical Intermediate Fellows in the country. This post was awarded based on my high profile academic and research background and to fund my research into causes of heart disease and its risk factors.
