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 30 articles in peer-reviewed medical journals, presented my own research at international medical conferences and managed grant applications to the National Institute for Health Research collaborating with eminent Professors in Cardiovascular Medicine.
