I am currently a microsurgical fellow at Guys and St Thomas NHS Trust in London. After graduating with Distinction in medicine from Cambridge University in 2004, I subsequently undertook basic surgical training in Nottingham before starting plastic surgical training in London in 2006.  I was awarded a National Training Number in 2008 and during my rotations I have worked at Guys and St Thomas’, Great Ormond Street, Chelsea and Westminster and St George’s Hospitals in London. In 2015 I obtained the FRCS(Plast) and  then my CCT in 2017.  In 2016-2017 I undertook a hand and microsurgery fellowship at The Royal Children’s Hospital, Melbourne, Australia.

Throughout my training I have maintained an interest in research and have published on a diverse range of subjects in plastic surgery, most recently on the activation of masseter and temporalis in voluntary and spontaneous smile, published in JPRAS in March 2018.  My research work has now been presented both nationally and internationally.

When I'm not at work I'm busy looking after my three children and if I manage to squeeze in any free time I enjoy running and swimming.
