Biography

I am a Senior Clinical Lecturer in Cardiovascular Medicine at the University of East Anglia and an honorary consultant cardiologist at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital, Norwich, Royal Papworth Hospital, Cambridge and the Royal Brompton Hospital, London, UK. I studied medicine at UCL, London and did my postgraduate training initially in internal medicine and then in cardiology in Cambridge and London where I received level 3 accreditation from both the Society of Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance and the European Society of Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance. I hold a Master’s Degree in Medical Education from the University of Bedford and a PhD in Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance tissue characterisation from Imperial College London. My research interests are both clinical and basic science focusing on valvular heart disease, arrhythmia, heart failure and crdiac imaging. I also have an interest in epidemiological research and I am a nucleus committee member for the Population, Epidemiology and Prevention Section of the European Society of Preventive Cardiology.
