I am a Paediatric Gastroenterologist and Honorary Reader at the Centre for Paediatric Gastroenterology in Sheffield.
I graduated from Aberdeen Medical School in 1985 and started paediatric gastroenterology training in 1987/8. In the early 1990s I spent five years working in Australia, as a Clinical Research Fellow in gastroenterology and cystic fibrosis at the Royal Children's Hospital Foundation in Brisbane with Prof Ross Shepherd. While there I was awarded my Medical Doctorate on cystic fibrosis genetics and energy expenditure.
