My research interests are in palliative care, cancer and commissioning decision-making in publicly-funded health systems.






I graduated from medical school in 2004 (Royal Free and University College London Medical School), intercalating a BSc in International Health at University College London in 2003. I undertook medical SHO training in the South West, becoming a Member of the Royal College of Physicians in 2007 and taking time out to complete a Diploma in Tropical Medicine and Hygiene (DTM&H) at the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine in 2007.

In 2008 I entered public health training as an academic clinical fellow and completed a full-time MSc in Epidemiology at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, before becoming a Member of the Faculty of Public Health in 2010 and a qualified public health consultant (CCT) in 2016. 

I took time out of public health training to complete my NIHR doctoral fellowship (2015), a PhD addressing equity of access to high-cost cancer drugs in the NHS (Unviersity of Bristol)

I am now an academic clinical lecturer in palliative medicine (since 2016) and an ARC West NIHR Dan Hill fellow in equity.  I have a PGCE teaching qualification for higher education and participate in the undergraduate curriculum in global and public health and in palliative medicine.
