After completing an MSc in Surgical Sciences at Imperial College, London I moved to Leicester to take up an Academic Clinical Fellowship in General/Vascular Surgery. I am currently a British Heart Foundation clinical research fellow undertaking my PhD looking at cardiovascular risk around surgery at the University of Leicester. I am also the President of the Association of Surgeons in Training, and am the Trainee Representative on Society of Academic & Research Surgery Council.
