MBBS, MRCP, FRCR, MD (res)
My medical training took place at Guy’s and St Thomas’ Medical School, where I also gained a BSc with First Class honours. Following this, I undertook specialist training in clinical oncology on the Pan-Thames training rotation. During this time I spent two and a half years as a research fellow developing novel radiotherapy techniques for the treatment of lung cancer and is still part of a research team introducing new technology into lung cancer radiation planning.
I now work as a Clinical Oncology Consultant at Guy’s & St. Thomas’ Hospitals, where I am the Lead for Clinical Oncology research and development. My main clinical interests are in urological and thoracic malignancies, for which I have weekly clinics both at Guy’s & St Thomas’ Hospitals, and South London Healthcare NHS Trust. My research interests include tumour motion, radiotherapy dose escalation and the combination of novel agents with radiotherapy. I have been involved in several clinical trials in this field and am on the Trial Management Group for two UK multicentre trials. I have published over 20 papers and abstracts. I have also been an active member of the Oncology Section of the Royal Society of Medicine for over 10 years, and am President of the section for the 2011-2012 Session.
