Profile

I completed a double degree in Chemistry and Dentistry in 2003 and obtained my PhD in Restorative Dentistry from the University of Sheffield in 2006.

Following a year of further clinical training in Oral and Maxillofacial surgery, I joined the University of Sheffield as a Clinical Lecturer in Restorative Dentistry in 2007 and have been closely involved with undergraduate and postgraduate teaching and research at the School of Clinical Dentistry.

I enrolled on an academic specialist training programme in Restorative Dentistry in 2009 and following successful completion of 5 years specialty training and passing the Intercollegiate Specialty Fellowship Exam (ISFE), I was awarded CCST and became a specialist in Prosthodontics, Periodontics, Endodontics and Restorative Dentistry and acquired the fellowship of the Royal College of Surgeons of England in 2015.

I also obtained my Postgraduate Certificate in Teaching and Learning from the University of Sheffield and became a fellow of the Higher Education Academy in 2012.

I was promoted to a Senior Clinical Lecturer and Consultant in Restorative Dentistry in 2016.

Research interests

I am leading multidisciplinary internationally recognised research in the field or Dental Biomaterials and Tissue Engineering. I have extensively published in the literature and given numerous presentations in the national and international conferences.
My main research activities fall into four different categories:

  • Tissue engineering of human alveolar bone and oral mucosa and development of three dimensional tissue models for various laboratory and clinical applications.
  • Biocompatibility assessment of dental biomaterials and oral healthcare products.
  • Chemical synthesis and analysis of polymers and composite materials used in dentistry and medicine.
  • Investigation of physical and optical properties of different types of aesthetic dental materials.

Clinical

I am a registered specialist in Prosthodontics, Periodontics, Endodontics and Restorative Dentistry. My clinical work has included both private dental practice and hospital-based treatment of patients referred by the General Dental Practitioners for advanced restorative rehabilitation. I have a broad area of clinical interest ranging from periodontics to dental implants and prosthodontic management of compromised dentition as well as aesthetic dentistry. I am also interested in clinical audit and research of the outcome of endodontic treatment.
