I am a Senior Lecturer in Radiology and based at Portland Square in Plymouth. My job is split with the NHS and I practice as a Consultant Radiologist, based at Derriford Hospital during clinical sessions.

I originally went to Medical School in Leicester, worked in Leicester, Peterborough and Plymouth before taking up my current University/ Clinical post in October 2010. My clinical interests include Cardiac CT, Cardiac MRI, and cross sectional imaging. I am interested in the use of Medical imaging in the teaching of anatomy.
