Biography

I studied preclinical medicine at Pembroke College, Oxford followed by clinical medicine at New College, Oxford. I undertook an NIHR Academic Foundation Programme in North Central Thames, with a research component at UCL investigating RNA signalling in ovarian carcinogenesis under the supervision of Prof Martin Widschwendter. I spent six months in Malawi in 2015, leading a clinical study investigating Acute Kidney Injury in pregnancy at Queen Elizabeth Central Hospital, Blantyre before moving back to Oxford to commence specialist training in Obstetrics and Gynaecology. During an NIHR Academic Clinical Fellowship in Oxford I identified novel tRNA species within placental vesicles and was awarded a Wellcome Trust Doctoral Training Fellowship in 2020 to investigate the role of tRNA signalling in preeclampsia.
