I studied medical sciences at Trinity College, University of Cambridge, where I was a junior, senior and research scholar. I was then elected to the Henry Fellowship at Harvard University and returned to the University of Cambridge to complete my medical studies and a PhD in molecular biology at the MRC Laboratory of Molecular Biology.
After completing my foundation programme junior doctor training in Belfast, I returned to Cambridge where I was first an academic clinical fellow in translational medicine and therapeutics, then clinical lecturer in oncology during which I completed my training in medical oncology. I was then a research fellow in early phase clinical trials, before taking up my current post as consultant in medical oncology, specialising in thoracic oncology and neuro-oncology, and clinical lead for cancer in the East NHS Genomic Laboratory Hub. This hub provides state of the art genomic sequencing for patients with cancer in the East Midlands and East of England.
