I joined the University of Sheffield in 2012 as an Academic foundation doctor having completed my undergraduate studies in Manchester. I received a BSc in Physiology in 2010 before going onto to obtain my medical degree in 2012. As an academic foundation doctor, I developed my interest in cardiology research particularly in the treatment of acute coronary syndromes and stable angina and imaging in coronary artery disease. I was subsequently awarded an NIHR academic clinical fellowship. During this time, I developed a keen interest in computational modelling and its application to cardiac imaging techniques. I went on to obtain a BHF clinical research training fellowship within the Department of Infection, Immunity and Cardiovascular Disease through which I am studying the application of computational modelling to coronary artery stenting. I am a member of the mathematical modelling in medicine group and the Insigneo institute for in silico medicine. I am also an Honorary specialist training registrar in Cardiology at Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.

Research Interests:

My research interests are in computational modelling of coronary physiology and personalised medicine. This involves applying computational fluid dynamics technology to coronary imaging, permitting the computation of physiological parameters such as pressure and flow. My current work is focused on the development of a virtual stenting model that can predict the physiological outcome to different coronary intervention strategies. This novel approach permits personalised treatment planning by computing the expecting physiological response to stenting strategies.

Teaching Interests:

I am also interested in education and continue to teach regularly. I teach clinical skills to medical students both formally and on the wards and have delivered lectures on stable angina as part of the MbChB curriculum. I have also enjoyed teaching about cardiac physiology and computational medicine as part of then Cardiovascular Medicine MRes course.
