I studied medicine at the University of Dundee. Following completion of my general medical training, I undertook training in infectious diseases, medical microbiology and virology at the University Hospitals of Leicester.

I was first appointed as a consultant in microbiology and infectious disease in 2009 at Queen Elizabeth Hospital, King's Lynn and Addenbrookes Hospital, Cambridge. I joined Brighton and Sussex University Hospitals NHS Trust in 2014 as a consultant in microbiology and infectious disease where I am also the clinical lead for OPAT (Outpatient Parenteral Antibiotic service).
