I am a Specialist Registrar in Stroke Medicine with a research interest in atherosclerosis and vascular inflammation. My current research uses Positron Emission Tomography (PET) and Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) to measure inflammation within the carotid artery in relation to stroke severity and recovery. This research is supervised by Dr Elizabeth Warburton and is performed in collaboration with the Departments of Medicine (Cardiovascular Medicine) and Radiology within the School of Clinical Medicine.
I hold an honorary clinical post providing clinical care within the Stroke Department at the Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust and am also involved in the recruitment of participants into hyper-acute stroke trials. My clinical training has included rotations within stroke units across East Anglia and I am involved in analysing and improving service delivery of stroke thrombolysis across this region.
