Honorary Senior Clinical Lecturer

  • Consultant in Obstetrics and 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 following which I took up my current position as Consultant in Obstetrics and Fetal Medicine in Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust in 2021. I was awarded an Honorary Clinical Lectureship from the University of Oxford in 2021 and continue to be research active.

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. I am currently a co-applicant on an MRC Programme Grant and a Principal Investigator for the ongoing CAREFOL-HT trial, a randomised controlled trial investigating the effects of 5-MHTF supplementation in early onset preeclampsia.
