About me

I am a research-active consultant who trained in medical oncology at the Northern Ireland Cancer Centre and Royal Marsden NHS Foundation Trust London. After working as a Locum consultant at Royal Marsden for 21 months, I took substantive consultant position in Gastrointestinal Oncology at UCLH. I also attends North Middlesex University Hospital (NMUH), where I am the Clinical Lead of Carcinoma of Unknown Primary (CUP) and clinical research in Oncology.

I was awarded Robert McAlpine fellowship and studied mechanisms of response and resistance to targeted therapies in advanced colorectal cancer. I gained MD(Res) degree under supervision of Professor David Cunningham at the Institute of Cancer Research and the Royal Marsden Hospital. I was involved in setup and conduct of large multi-centre academic and translational studies from the time that he spent in full-time research, which included working as trial physician for phase II/III studies in early and advanced gastrointestinal cancers.

In collaboration with Professor Cunningham, I secured funding from industry to run an academic phase II study of a multikinase inhibitor in metastatic refractory colorectal cancer. I also wrote a successful application for NIHR portfolio adoption of this study. My main research interests involve stratification of therapies in patients with gastrointestinal malignancies, by setting up studies of clinical and translational relevance.

I have presented and lectured in international conferences and public forums respectively. I published several high impact papers in peer-reviewed journals including Science, Cancer Discovery, Cancer Cell, Gut, Gastroenterologist, Clinical Cancer Research, Oncogene, Oncologist, BMC Cancer, British Medical Journal (BMJ) and British Journal of Cancer. I also served as expert member of National Research and Ethics Committee.

I have also played an active role in improving the educational experience of the junior doctors nationally. I write questions for MRCP(UK) and Medical Oncology exams, and remain part of the national medical oncology recruitment panel.
