Profile

For enquiries, please contact – iicd-om-operational@sheffield.ac.uk

I qualified in Medicine with Honours in 2004 and undertook training in general medicine and gastroenterology until 2016. During this period, I also completed a postgraduate degree at the University of Sheffield, followed by a two-year post-doctoral fellowship in functional gastrointestinal disorders at the Sahlgrenska Academy, University of Gothenburg, Sweden. In late 2018, I was appointed Senior Clinical Lecturer and Honorary Consultant Gastroenterologist in Sheffield.

I am a Personal Academic Tutor and an Associate Director of Student Affairs for the University of Sheffield MBChB curriculum. I have successfully supervised undergraduate BMedSci and postgraduate research students to thesis/viva completion, including publications of original articles in high-impact journals. In view of my international expertise, I am co-author on the British Society of Gastroenterology guidelines on the management of irritable bowel syndrome and functional dyspepsia. In 2021, I was awarded the United European Gastroenterology Rising Star Award, a prize recognizing promising young clinician scientists across Europe. I serve on the editorial board of Gastroenterology, a leading international journal in the field of GI diseases.

Research interests

My research interests are in functional gastrointestinal disorders (e.g. irritable bowel syndrome and functional dyspepsia) and gluten-related disorders.
