I graduated from Clare College, Cambridge with Triple First Class Honours in Medical Sciences and obtained Distinctions in Surgery, Obstetrics and Gynaecology, and Pathology. I completed my house jobs and basic surgical training in Addenbrooke's, Papworth and Wycombe General Hospital, then undertook a DPhil in Oxford characterising Colorectal Cancer Stem Cells, working with Professor Sir Walter Bodmer and Professor Neil Mortensen. Following a post-doctoral fellowship at Stanford University, I started my academic clinical lectureship and higher surgical training in the Oxford Deanery in 2011.

My research focuses on the biology of colorectal cancer to help the diagnosis and treatment of this condition.

More than 40,000 patients in the UK are diagnosed with colorectal cancer each year, and approximately 55% of patients survive this type of cancer for five years or more.

My research interest is clinical translational research, in particular, Fluorescece Image Guided Surgery (FIGS). We are developing new techniques to identify normal anatomy and abnormal pathology during surgery which can help guide surgeons during procedures.
