Personal profile

My main clinical interest is in the field of Endocrinology, including pre-conception advice, antenatal Endocrine, general Endocrinology (thyroid, parathyroid, adrenal, pituitary and other problems) and Diabetes, including insulin pump and technology clinics. My clinical work is mostly based on Diabetes & Endocrine hospital wards and outpatient clinics.

I have led a local research project investigating the role of continuous glucose monitoring in pregnancy outcomes and diabetes control during pregnancy (CONCEPTT study; first results are published in Lancet, further publications are in progress). I have extensive experience in clinical and basic research.

I graduated from National University of Russia in 1994 (Doctor of Medicine) and completed internship & Residency in General Medicine (1995-2000) and 2 year fellowship in Diabetes and Endocrinology in Israel and entered a Specialist Register in both specialties. In 2002-2007, I worked as a consultant in Diabetes and Endocrinology in Israel in a tertiary hospital (Sheba Medical Centre).

In 2007, I moved to the UK to complete my PhD in the field of pregnancy complicated by maternal diabetes and abnormal foetal growth and in 2011 was awarded a PhD in Medicine (University of Manchester). I worked as a clinical lecturer in Diabetes & Endocrinology in the University of Sheffield, and in 2014 enrolled onto the UK Specialist Register in Diabetes, Endocrinology and General Medicine. I was also awarded a title of Fellow in High Education Academy.

In 2015, I was appointed as a consultant in Diabetes and Endocrinology at Russells Hall Hospital and in 2017, I was named senior clinical lecturer at Birmingham University and presented with a clinical excellence award and the title of Fellow of Royal College of Physicians (FRCP).
