Professional profile

I undertook my undergraduate training at Cambridge and Edinburgh University. My post graduate Radiation Oncology training was at the Southampton University Oncology Unit and included one year of research at The University of California, Davis which allowed me to gain experience in Image Guided Radiotherapy.

I was appointed to the Freeman Hospital as a Consultant in Clinical Oncology in July 2011 where I am still based today. My main areas of clinical interest are the treatment of lung and breast cancer with both chemotherapy and radiotherapy.
