Having graduated from Guy’s, King’s and St Thomas’ Medical School in 2002, I trained in respiratory and general medicine in the Severn deanery.

In 2012, I completed a PhD at the Royal Brompton Hospital and Imperial College London investigating skeletal muscle dysfunction and physical inactivity in patients with COPD.

I was appointed as a consultant physician in respiratory and general medicine at Musgrove Park Hospital in November 2014. I have a specialist interest in COPD and am currently the lead for Non-Invasive Ventilation.

My clinical research has received an award from the National Heart and Lung Institute and has been published in the European Respiratory Journal and Chest.

I have previously been a member of the Standards of Care Committee and Air Travel Working Party for the British Thoracic Society. I have also been a clinical educator for University of Bristol and Imperial College Medical Schools.
