My current role

I work in the diabetes in pregnancy service in the Rosie Hospital, where I see pregnant women with type 1 diabetes, type 2 diabetes, gestational diabetes and previous bariatric surgery. In addition, I spend several days a week working on my research in the field of diabetes, nutrition and obesity in pregnancy.

I am currently running a randomised controlled trial to find the best diet for women with gestational diabetes (DiGest trial) and an observational study assessing causes of gestational diabetes (OPHELIA study).

Previous history

I trained in medicine at the University of Glasgow and worked in Scotland for several years. I moved to Addenbrooke's Hospital in 2008 and specialised in chemical pathology (medical biochemistry) and metabolic medicine, developing specialist interests in diabetes in pregnancy, lipid disorders and obesity.

Membership/accreditations

I am a member of the Royal College of Physicians and Royal College of Pathologists. I am chair of the chemical pathology committee and serve on the executive board of the Association for Clinical Pathologists.

Personal interests

When I am not at work, I enjoy running, gardening on my allotment and spending time with my family.
