I studied Medicine at the University of Nottingham, during which time I also undertook an intercalated degree (BMedSci) in Neuroscience. Following completion of General Medical training I was appointed as a Specialist Registrar in Cardiology. In order to further develop my interest and skills in research, I took time out of my training programme to undertake a PhD, for which I was awarded a British Heart Foundation research fellowship. My research explored the role of reactive oxygen species in the link between insulin resistance and cardiovascular disease. I am currently training in Interventional Cardiology at Leeds General Infirmary. I have published over 15 papers in peer-reviewed journals and have presented at numerous national and international conferences.
In addition to this journal, I am also a member of the editorial board for Annals of Cardiology and Vascular Medicine, and am a sub-editor for the British Cardiac Society. Other interests include medical education, and I have worked in the role of Associate College Tutor for the Royal College of Physicians and am on the Curriculum Development Group for the national Ill Medical Patients Acute Care and Treatment (IMPACT) course.
His Research interests are Coronary and structural intervention.
