I studied medicine at University of Leeds , gaining MBChB in 2009. During that time I did an intercalated BSc in Pharmacology at University of Bradford. My dissertation was to determine the biological relevance of the intrinsic optical signal of spreading depression in a chicken retina model.
I went on to clinical training in London, and started specialty training in obstetrics and gynaecology in 2011.
I am now half way throught the clinical training programme for Obsterics and Gynaecology, and am taking time out to carry out research.
