Academic Clinical Fellow in Paediatric Surgery
I completed graduate-entry medical training at the University of Nottingham before joining the Academic Foundation Programme in Oxford. During this period, I worked with the Transplant Research Immunology Group under Dr Fadi Issa and Dr Joanna Hester investigating putative tolerogenic and alloreactive properties of γδ T lymphocytes in solid organ and haematopoietic stem cell transplantation. I aim to characterise where γδ T cells are mechanistically situated in transplant rejection in order to modulate this cascade through targeted intervention.
I was appointed as the Academic Clinical Fellow in Paediatric Surgery in August 2018 and am continuing to combine my interest in basic science research with higher surgical training. I am currently working towards a Postgraduate Diploma in Health Research at the University of Oxford as part of this role.
I am a keen medical educator and work as an Anatomy Demonstrator for pre-clinical medical students, undertake regular clinical teaching, and examine for the University of Oxford Learning Institute. I am an enthusiastic pianist during the occasional day off.
