I trained in medicine at Glasgow University and am a trained GP with a specialist interest in reproductive and sexual health and a consultant in Public Health Medicine. I have clinical and academic experience in primary care, secondary care, drug development, epidemiology, biostatistics and health technology assessment.

During a fellowship with the Contraceptive Development Network, funded by MRC and DFID I completed my doctorate of medicine (MD) at the University of Edinburgh titled "Increasing choice and use of contraception". I also hold a master's degree with distinction in Public health research from the University of Edinburgh and a Masters in Health Technology Assessment with distinction from the University of Glasgow. 

I am a reviewer for the Journal of Public Health  (UK) and the Child Development and Mental Health Journal of Rajanagarindra Institute of Child Development (Thailand). I am an Honorary Consultant in Public Health and Health Policy at Public Health England
