General Practitioner and Academic

I am a GP with clinical and research interest in cardiometabolic disease. I have also worked in vaccine research, multi-morbidity, polypharmacy and evidence synthesis. I completed my MSc in Diabetes where my dissertation was exploring the impact of smoking and its cessation on cardiometabolic parameters in people with Type 2 Diabetes. My doctorate thesis is one developing a conceptual framework of the natural history of kidney disease based on smoking and glycaemic status. I have interest in evidence synthesis, network meta-analysis, HTA and big data analyses. 

I have also been involved in teaching multi-professional primary care workforce

Outside work, I like travelling and playing chess.
