Personal profile

Biography

I trained in Respiratory and General Internal Medicine in North-West London, during which time I completed a PhD in the immunology of tuberculosis with Profs Ajit Lalvani and Onn Min Kon at St. Mary's Hospital. I started working as a consultant physician in Respiratory and Acute Internal Medicine at NHS Tayside in 2017. My main clinical interests incorporate complex lung infections, particularly tuberculosis, chronic pulmonary aspergillosis, and non-tuberculous mycobacteria. I also work in medical high dependency, and have interests in the delivery of care in both chronic and acute respiratory infections. In 2019 I was awarded a Chief Scientist's Office NRS Career Fellowship to study fungal lung infections.
