NIHR Academic Clinical Lecturer

  • NIHR Academic Clinical Lecturer
  • Subspecialty Trainee in Maternal Fetal Medicine


I graduated from St John's College, Oxford University in 2006 and began my specialist training in Obstetrics and Gynaecology in Health Education Thames Valley in 2008. From 2014-2017, I undertook a DPhil in Cardiovascular Medicine under the supervision of Professor Paul Leeson (Cardiovascular Medicine) and Dr Ingrid Granne (NDWRH) investigating the effects of pregnancy complications on fetal and neonatal cardiovascular development. During this time I was awarded international and national prizes for my work including runner up in the RCOG Blair Bell Research Society Prize in 2017. 

I was appointed as an NIHR Academic Lecturer in 2017 alongside a Subspecialty Training post in Maternal Fetal Medicine in Health Education Thames Valley.

I have a focussed research interest in long-term cardiovascular consequences of pregnancy complications, such as hypertensive disorders of pregnancy and preterm birth, in the mother and child and the pathological mechanisms behind them.
