I qualified in Medicine from the University of Sheffield in 2003. I then undertook general medical training in South Yorkshire, before completing a Postgraduate Diploma in Medical Education (University of Nottingham).

In 2010 I was appointed as a Bardhan Research and Education Trust clinical research fellow under the supervision of Professor David Sanders. In 2014 I joined the University of Sheffield as a Clinical Lecturer.

I am now a Senior Clinical Lecturer and Honorary Consultant Gastroenterologist.

Research interests

My research interests are in small bowel disease and clinical nutrition, with outputs predominantly in coeliac disease and gastrostomy feeding. Other research interests include gastrointestinal bleeding, bile acid diarrhoea and irritable bowel syndrome.

In coeliac disease my work has focused on detection, using differing endoscopic techniques and point of care tests. I am now examining the autoimmune association between Coeliac disease and Type 1 Diabetes, and also investigating the overlap with non-coeliac gluten sensitivity. In gastrostomy feeding, my research has aimed at improving patient selection for this intervention.

In 2016, I was awarded the Julie Wallace Award by the Nutrition Society for my contributions to this field.
