I received fellowship training in corneal surgery at Moorfields Eye Hospital in London, as well as King's College Hospital, London and Leicester Royal Infirmary. I spent time at the top-ranked corneal centre in India, the LV Prasad Eye Institute in Hyderabad. I learnt additional techniques for complex cataract surgery as well as about how to manage severe corneal infections. I completed ophthalmology training in Nottingham, and prior to that was a doctor in Oxford after graduation from there. I received my undergraduate degree from Cambridge.
