Profile:
I qualified from Imperial College London in 2002. Having completed junior medical posts in London and the West Midlands, I began my specialist training in clinical oncology in Northern Ireland and the East of England in 2006. I passed my exam for the Fellowship of the Royal College of Radiologists (FRCR) in 2009, and went on to complete a clinical research fellowship in Mount Vernon Hospital, supported by the Prostate Cancer Charity. I was appointed consultant at Ipswich Hospital in 2014. My research interest is in the impact of radiation on the tumour micro-environment, in particular the use of hypoxic modifiers and immune check point modulators in conjunction with radiotherapy.

In my clinical practice, I look after patients with lung, brain, head and neck, and skin cancers.
