Research

I am the Associate Medical Director for Research and Development at Worcestershire Acute Hospital.  My specific research interests include: subcutaneous implantable cardioverter defibrillators, atrial fibrillation and risk prediction modelling.

I was awarded a Doctor of Medicine from the University of Southampton in 2017 for research undertaken in subcutaneous implantable cardioverter.

I have published over 20 articles in peer-reviewed medical journals, presented his research at international

 

medical conferences and authored chapters in medical textbooks. I am also actively involved in medical training and has worked regularly with the British cardiac society as part of their simulator training program.
