Personal profile

I was a medical student at Oxford and Cambridge Universities. I trained in general medicine in Nottingham before specialising in cardiology in Cambridge and Norwich.I spent three years researching the effects of exercise on the heart rhythm for which I was awarded a HRUK young investigator award. I undertook specialist training in cardiac electrophysiology at the John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford. I finished my training with a year as the Senior Electrophysiology Fellow in the Heart Hospital, London.

During this time I was a lecturer at St Hugh’s college Oxford. I am trained in all aspects of the management of abnormal heart rhythms including ablation, pacemaker and defibrillator implantation as well as medical treatment.
