MBChB, MRCP, FRCR, MD(Res)
I specialise in the treatment of gynaecological cancers (cervical, endometrial, vulval and vaginal) and the delivery of brachytherapy. I have a keen interest in complex targeted radiotherapy delivery using image guidance and adaptive techniques as well as the use of imaging biomarkers during chemo-radiotherapy. I was awarded a MD(Res) from University College London (UCL) in 2016 for my work on optimisation of cervical cancer radiotherapy. Since that time I have been a substantive consultant and brachytherapy lead initially at Imperial College Healthcare Trust and now at University College London Hospital. Alongside my clinical work I am a member of the NCRI Gynaecological Oncology CSG and am a Honorary Clinical Senior Lecturer at UCL continuously working to develop my research portfolio.
Throughout my career I have pursued my research interest completing a MSc at the Institute of Cancer Research then MD(Res) as UCL. This work has resulted in multiple oncology publications, the majority as first author, and numerous abstracts presented at National and International meetings. I have also written book chapters and review submitted oncology manuscripts for key oncology journals including Radiotherapy and Oncology, International Journal of Radiation Oncology Biology Physics, and Clinical Oncology. In my current post I am an Honorary Clinical Senior Lecturer at UCL and am a member of the NCRI Gynaecological Oncology CSG. I work on clinical trials and collaborate internationally. I also run a study investigating the role of PET-MRI in patients undergoing chemoradiation for cervical cancer and am clinical radiation expert for a study on intraoperative radiotherapy for recurrent pelvic cancer. Alongside all of this I continue to develop trial proposals within pelvic radiotherapy, including using proton beam therapy.
