Professional profile/background:

I was awarded my medical degree with commendation and graduated from the University of Aberdeen in 2000. Thereafter undertook core medical training in the West of Scotland, followed by a British Heart Foundation Clinical PhD Scholarship to study cardiac electrophysiology at the University of Glasgow. I then completed my Cardiology specialist training in the West of Scotland, with subspecialty training in Cardiac Electrophysiology in the National Heart and Lung Centre at the Golden Jubilee National Hospital in Glasgow. After completing specialist training, I then moved to Australia where I worked for 2 years under the tutelage of world renowned Professor Jonathan Kalman as a Clinical Fellow in Cardiac Electrophysiology and Pacing at Royal Melbourne Hospital. I was appointed as a Consultant in the Bristol Heart Institute in November 2014. I continue to have a very active role in teaching of undergraduate medical students as an Honorary Senior Clinical Lecturer at the University of Bristol and as Lead for Cardiology Undergraduate Training for South Bristol Academy.
