I completed undergraduate medical training at Cambridge University before qualifying in clinical medicine from Oxford University in 2005. My postgraduate training was spread between Oxford and the East of England but I also worked for a year as a doctor in Muheza, Tanzania. As a specialist registrar I chaired the British Thoracic Society’s specialist trainees’ advisory group. In 2016 I was awarded the RCP excellence in patient care award for improving smoking cessation services and training.
My main specialist clinical interests include lung infection, bronchiectasis and Tuberculosis (TB). I also regularly perform bronchoscopy, thoracic ultrasound and endobronchial ultrasound (EBUS) procedures. I have postgraduate qualifications in medical education from the university of Dundee. I work nationally with the British Thoracic Society as lead on sustainable respiratory care and am an associate of the Centre for Sustainable Healthcare in Oxford. I have numerous publications in this area and am particularly interested in reducing the environmental impact of inhaled medications.
