I studied medicine in Leeds graduating in 2001 and moved to Leicester in 2007. My clinical role is as a Consultant Cardiologist specialising in heart failure and complex pacemakers with strong research and education interests. Over the last 10 years my research into sudden cardiac death prevention has attracted £1.6 million in funding and has won numerous awards. I have supervised multiple MD / BSc students who have also won awards and gained high impact publications. I organise weekly educational sessions for junior doctors and am regularly invited to speak / run simulation sessions around the region.

I am a general cardiologist with special interests in heart failure and complex pacemakers. I would be happy to discuss / speak on any cardiology topic. I would also be happy to discuss my research into sudden cardiac death and heart failure. My research has previously featured on East Midland’s Today I am comfortable speaking to a camera.
