My current role

At CUH I am an academic radiation oncologist and I am based in the neuro-oncology team. I am also lead clinician for stereotactic radiosurgery in Cambridge.

I lead a multi-professional computational radiotherapy group across the departments of oncology, physics, and engineering and I’m an investigator at the EPSRC Centre for Mathematical Imaging in Healthcare in Cambridge.

My clinical interests range from primary tumours of the brain and spine, precision radiotherapy and clinical radiation biology, radiotherapy retreatment and management of cerebral oligometastatic disease.

Previous history

I graduated with a 1st class medical degree from the University of Cambridge in 1995 and subsequently received the Raymond Horton Smith prize for my MD thesis in advanced MR imaging of glioblastoma.

I developed my interest in MR imaging of glioblastoma and computational imaging during my clinician scientist fellowship before obtaining a full time academic post in 2014.

Personal interests

I enjoy teaching students from pre-school to medical school about oncology, and I am actively involved with organisations that help patients contribute to the design of medical research. Outside of work I enjoy photography and cycling.
