Personal profile:
Having completed the Lady Estelle Wolfson Emerging Leaders fellowship at the Royal College of Surgeons, I am keen to support diversity in surgery and have taken part in the Inspiring the Future campaign to raise awareness of science subjects as a career in schoolchildren. This has been a great way of inspiring the next generation of surgeons with artificial bones, drills and hammers for them to see what our job entails.

In my spare time I enjoy outdoor pursuits and I like to spend time with my family.
