I qualified from Oxford Medical School in 2007 and went on to complete Foundation Training in London. I returned to Oxford in 2009 to commence Core Surgical Training as a National Institute for Health Research sponsored Academic Clinical Fellow. During this time I developed an experimental interest in donor management and organ preservation under the supervision of Professor Rutger Ploeg, Dr Susan Fuggle and Professor Chris Pugh.
I am currently completing a DPhil as a Royal College of Surgeons Research Fellow exploring the therapeutic potential of manipulating the Hypoxia Inducible Factor pathway in brain dead organ donors. In addition I am part of the National Management Team and am the Scientific Secretary for the NHS Blood and Transplant sponsored Quality in Organ Donation (QUOD) initiative.
I am the Scientific Secretary of the COPE Consortium and am responsible for assisting the COPE Co-ordinators and aiding in the design and execution of clinical and experimental studies.
