My passion for evidence based plastic and reconstructive surgery began at Norwich Medical School. After graduating with distinctions in my MBSS and MClinEd, and gaining several prizes, I continued my research efforts alongside my junior doctor training in Norfolk. As an aspiring plastic surgeon, I am fortunate to have be mentored by several renowned academics who have helped to equip me with the skills and resilience required for clinical academia.
In 2013, I relocated to Yorkshire to undertake Core Surgical Training and gain MRCS. Thereafter, in 2015 I was appointed NIHR Academic Clinical Fellowship in Plastic Surgery in Leeds.
During my short career as a junior doctor (and amongst other achievements) I have authored over 35 publications, delivered numerous international presentations, acquired small grants for research, gained membership to the Cochrane Collaboration as a contributing author.
Research Interest: My academic interests are summarised on my Google Scholar and ResearchGate profile pages, but include: peripheral nerve injury imaging, hand trauma, acute burns surgery, skin cancer surgery, breast reconstruction and statistical methodology. My main research efforts are focused on novel MRI techniques for diagnosing major peripheral nerve injury. Ultimately, I hope that this new scan could obviate the need for exploratory surgery and allow immediate treatment, in turn preventing disability and chronic pain.
