Professional profile: I qualified from University College London Medical School in 2012 and undertook my initial postgraduate medical training in hospitals across North London. I trained in haematology in Norfolk and Cambridge. I joined the team at NNUH as a Consultant Haematologist in 2023. I am involved in the management of all blood disorders. My clinical practice focuses predominantly on the diagnosis and treatment of lymphoma and myeloma, and I am principle investigator and sub-investigator for a number of national and international clinical trials in these disorders.

I have an interest in the role of medical ethics and law in clinical practice. I joined the NNUH Clinical Ethics Advisory Group in 2023, and I am a member of the Institute of Medical Ethics. I am lead for clinical governance within the haematology department. I have an interest in medical education and provide teaching on both haematology and medical ethics within the UEA Medical School.
