I studied medicine at the Royal Free and University College Medical School, and following general medical training, completed training in radiology at the Imperial College Hospitals NHS Trust (Charing Cross, Hammersmith and St Mary's Hospitals). I received specialist training in oncology (cancer) imaging at Mount Vernon Hospital and in pelvic floor and colonic imaging at St Marks Hospital. I commenced my consultant post at University Hospitals of Leicester NHS Trust in October 2011.

My main areas of clinical interest are:

- colorectal imaging, including CT colonography for colonic cancer and polyps

- small bowel imaging, including assessment of Crohn's disease

- pelvic floor imaging with endoanal ultrasound and both xray and MRI proctography, for the assessment of symptoms such as bowel prolapse, incontinence and difficulty in opening bowels

- general CT, MRI and ultrasound imaging of the abdomen and pelvis for non-specific abdominal pains, weight loss, gallstones, and liver and kidney disease

Away from clinical work, I am a passionate educator, and have embraced novel educational technology and social media to teach.

I am available for private radiology reporting and now provide second opinions on imaging through

Outside of work, I am kept very busy by my two young children. I enjoy broadening my horizons by travelling, and am attempting to gain some culinary skills!
