About me

I am I am an Honorary Consultant in Sport and Exercise Medicine. My NHS practice is at the Institute of Sport, Exercise and Health (ISEH) at University College London Hospital (UCLH), where I am also joint lead of UCL's MSc programme in Sports Medicine, Exercise & Health.

I have extensive experience in both endurance and team sports medicine through my role as the Assistant Medical Director of the London Marathon (2009-) and RideLondon (2022-), and previous roles as the Medical Director of the London and Blenheim Triathlons (2011-2018) and as the Club Doctor for Harlequins Rugby Club (2012-2019).�

My research and clinical interests are focused on injuries and illnesses relating to participation in endurance sport, especially running, cycling and triathlons.

I am co-organiser of Marathon Medicine, the largest and longest running conference on the medicine and science of endurance sports world-wide.

I have been an elected Council member of the Faculty of Sport and Exercise Medicine, UK, and founding Board member of the International Institute of Race Medicine (now World Academy of Race Medicine).

I am covered by all major insurance companies.
