Current research interests in:
Cardiac MRI - 1. The comprehensive role of cardiovascular MRI in
systemic hypertension; including renal denervation 2.
Identifying biological markers of reno-vascular ageing in patients
with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
Cardiac CT - Congenital and coronary imaging with future
expansion into CT myocardial perfusion imaging.
I graduated from the University of Bristol in 1995 and underwent
general medical training before specialising in cardiology to
registrar level. Subsequently I trained in Clinical Radiology
(2001-2007) on the Peninsula training scheme in Plymouth which
included a Royal College of Radiology funded Fellowship in the
"Clinical Applications of Cardiac Computed Tomography" which
culminated in the award of Doctor of Medicine in 2010.
Following this, I was awarded a Cardiac Radiology Fellowship in
the prestigious Green Lane Cardiovascular Service in Auckland, New
Zealand (2007-8) where I specialised in cardiac imaging with an
emphasis on congenital heart disease and catheter coronary
On return, I spent one year as a Consultant Radiologist at the
Royal Cornwall Hospital (2008-9) primarily specialising in
interventional radiology before joining the Bristol Heart
Institute, BRI in 2009 where I continue research interests in both
cardiac CT and MRI.
