I teach clinical medicine to the 4th year and 6th year students at St Catherine’s and all four years of the Graduate Entry medical students. I am also the Clinical Tutor in Surgery for the University and Associate Director of Clinical Studies for Oxford Medical School.
After undergraduate training at Imperial College, London, I trained in vascular and transplant surgery at the Royal London and Royal Free Hospitals. I moved to Oxford in 1998 to complete my training and was appointed to the consultant staff in 2001. I now specialise in vascular surgery and was appointed Reader in Surgery in 2008. I have been a keen rugby player in the past, but now mainly support my three sons on the touchline. I am also the Tutor for Graduates at St Catherine’s College and oversee the graduate student body.
My research interests are in patient safety, outcomes in surgery and vascular imaging. I have collaborative programmes with Professor Robin Choudhury in cardiovascular medicine, Professor Peter Jezzard in brain imaging and a programme of research into the causes of aneurysm development.
I have one post-doctorate student, and co-supervise three doctorate students in the Medical Sciences division.
