My areas of interest include ventricular tachycardia and atrial fibrillation. My research focuses on novel techniques to identify the site of origin of ventricular arrhythmias using three dimensional mapping technology. I hold intellectual property in this field.

I joined St George’s University Hospital as consultant cardiac electrophysiologist/senior lecturer in the summer of 2010. My prior appointment was assistant professor at the University of Maryland School of Medicine, Baltimore, Maryland, USA, where I served in the division of cardiology and cardiac electrophysiology for four years.

After receiving my medical degree from the faculty of medicine at Cairo University, Egypt, I completed a residency and obtained an MSc in cardiovascular disease at Cairo University Hospitals. Subsequently, I completed an internship and residency in internal medicine at SUNY at Syracuse, New York, and the George Washington University Medical Center, Washington, DC, USA. I then undertook a fellowship in cardiovascular disease at the Ochsner Clinic Foundation, New Orleans, Louisiana, USA, and subsequently a sub-specialty fellowship in clinical cardiac electrophysiology at Loyola University, Chicago. I am certified by the American Board of Internal Medicine in internal medicine, cardiovascular disease and clinical cardiac electrophysiology.

I am the founding chairman of the annual London Ventricular Tachyarrhythmia Symposium.
