About me

I trained at Oxford University and Birmingham Medical School and have a PhD from Queen Mary University, London. My higher specialist training in Respiratory and General Medicine began in Sheffield in 2009 and finished in London in 2016. After working as a Locum Consultant at King’s College Hospital, I have been a Substantive Consultant at Imperial College NHS Healthcare Trust since late 2018.

With experience of a broad range of hospitals across the UK, I am now based at Charing Cross Hospital in London. I specialise in lung cancer, pleural disease, bronchiectasis and other lung infections, as well as general Respiratory and Internal Medicine. I am also expert in the management of persistent cough, and am proficient at bronchoscopy and pleural procedures.

During 2020 I have also gained a lot of experience with treating covid-19, both the initial illness, and the after effects.

I also have a strong academic record, with publications particularly in the fields of chronic cough and tuberculosis, and am an Honorary Clinical Senior Lecturer at King’s College London. I have presented my research nationally and internationally, am an invited reviewer for leading respiratory journals, and a keen teacher of medical students and junior doctors.

Areas of interest

All respiratory conditions but particularly: persistent cough; respiratory infections including pneumonia, bronchiectasis, and tuberculosis; pneumothorax; pleural effusion; unexplained breathlessness; lung cancer; asthma; COPD (emphysema and chronic bronchitis); covid-19.
