I qualified from the Royal Veterinary College (RVC) having intercalated at King College London. Following a short time in charity small animal practice I completed a Wellcome sponsored PhD at the Medical Research Council’s (MRC) Clinical Research Centre in transplantation biology. I was then appointed a Research Fellow in developmental biology at the MRC National Institute for Medical Research. I then returned to the RVC as a Resident and completed my training and became an ECVIM Diplomate in Cardiology. I have remained at the RVC since and am now Associate Professor. I maintain a 50% clinic commitment and also have a large and varied research programme which covers both basic and clinical science. In particular, I have an interest in myocardial disease in cats and dogs at the genetic, cellular and clinical level.
I am an author on over 50 peer reviewed publications in clinical veterinary and scientific journals and many scientific abstracts submitted to veterinary and medical scientific congresses
