For the early part of my career I worked and trained in Manchester before spending two years at the University Hospital, Kuala Lumpur, as a lecturer in Obstetrics and Gynaecology in the University of Malaysia. I then did research into cervical carcinoma as a Joseph Starkey Research Fellow at the Patterson Institute, Manchester. After working as a Senior Registrar in Exeter I came to Bristol in 1995.
One of my principal responsibilities in the division is co-ordination and development of the undergraduate course in Reproductive Health and Care of the Newborn. As well as educational interests I have research interest in early cervical dyskariosis, HPV infection and the role cytokine polymorphisms might play in the development of this disease. My clinical interests include evaluation of women with cervical dyskariosis (Colposcopy), and surgical and medical management of menstrual disorders.
