I studied medicine at Sheffield University, graduating in 2003. Following basic medical training I undertook specialist radiology training on the Hull Radiology training scheme.

I joined the University of Sheffield in 2010 as a NIHR Cardiovascular Clinical Fellow and I was awarded a NIHR Biomedical Research Fellowship to complete my PhD entitled “Developing the Role of Magnetic Resonance Imaging in Pulmonary Hypertension”. I am interested in the use of computer science in medicine to improve diagnosis and prognostication, I was employed by INSIGNEO for 5 years as a research fellow and am now a Wellcome Trust Clinical Career Development Fellow.

Research interests

My research interests include the clinical application of novel imaging techniques and analysis approaches in patients with cardiac and pulmonary disease.

Current projects

  • Machine learning to improve disease assessment in cardiac and pulmonary disease.
  • Developing MRI as diagnostic and prognostic tool - DITCH.
  • Lung subtraction Iodine mapping in patients with suspected chronic emboli - INSITGATE.
  • Repeatability of magnetic resonance imaging cardiopulmonary metrics in pulmonary arterial hypertension - Implications for trial design.
  • Understanding the phenotype of genetic variants using magnetic resonance imaging and computed tomography - COHORT study.
  • Risk stratification of patients with cardiac and pulmonary disorders.
