MBBS, MSc (Oxon).
Clinical Research Fellow / DPhil Candidate
I completed my undergraduate medical education at Guy’s, King’s and St.Thomas’ School of Medicine, University of London. This was followed by foundation training in the South Thames Deanery in England and a Master of Science in Clinical Embryology at the University of Oxford.
I am currently a specialist trainee in Obstetrics & Gynaecology, a clinical research fellow and DPhil candidate at the University of Oxford. Other key roles include: honorary academic researcher for the National Congenital Anomalies Disease Registry (NHS England) and member of the Board of Examiners for the MSc in Clinical Embryology at the University of Oxford.
I have clinical and academic interests in maternal-fetal medicine, the diagnosis and management of fetal anomalies, prenatal public health screening and innovation in ultrasound technology.
My current work, under the supervision of Prof. Aris Papageorghiou, involves managing all clinical research activities for NIHR HTA Grant 17/19/10 which explores the clinical and cost-effectiveness of a routine first trimester anomaly screening program for women in England. I am also involved with the PULSE and PURFECT trials (collaborations with the Department of Engineering Science), which aim to model the process by which expert sonographers perform ultrasound and to use this knowledge to develop assistive tools using machine learning and AI technology.
My research at the University of Oxford allows me the privilege of collaborating with a number of experts in fetal and obstetric medicine, health economics, engineering science, qualitative research, patient advocacy, and health policy from across England.
