I graduated from Barts and The London School of Medicine & Dentistry in 2010 and subsequently completed training in Nephrology and General Internal Medicine on the North Thames rotation in London. I undertook a Masters degree in Epidemiology at the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine in 2017-19, and returned to commence an NIHR Doctoral Research Fellowship in 2021. I continue to do clinical work as an honorary consultant nephrologist at Barts Health NHS Trust.
