About me

I am a Consultant Cardiologist experienced in all aspects of adult Cardiology practice, in particular the management of angina and coronary artery disease. I specialise in coronary intervention ie. diagnostic coronary angiography and angioplasty and stent insertion.

I was appointed as a Consultant Cardiologist at Glenfield Hospital in 2017 after completing my interventional training with a Cardiology Fellowship undertaken at Toronto General Hospital, Canada. Prior to this I had undertaken my cardiology and interventional training at the world-renowned Papworth Hospital in Cambridge before being selected for the highly competitive BCIS interventional Fellowship in Toronto.

During my training I also undertook a dedicated period of research culminating in a PhD from King’s College, University of London. This has resulted in a a number of peer-reviewed publications including as a main author on the MR-INFORM study published in the New England Journal of Medicine.(2019).

Within my clinical practice, I manage a wide range of cardiovascular disorders including hypertension, valvular disease and arrhythmia management.

I undertake coronary interventional procedures including complex angioplasty, physiological testing with FFR/IFR and coronary imaging including intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) and Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT). Having also trained in perfusion CMR, I combine my practical expertise with experience of non-invasive ischaemia testing.

I am also elected to a number of national and international committees including an elected member of the British Cardiovascular Society Education committee and the european EAPCI gender and disparities committee, I also am a member of the BCS and BCIS Women in Cardiology committees.
