I am a Clinical Lecturer/Honorary Speciality Registrar in Restorative Dentistry. I completed my MSc with distinction and PhD at Leeds.

For my PhD I developed novel nano-hybride dental composite with anticaries properties. Previously I spent a significant period of time in both General Practice and as a Senior House Officer in Maxillofacial Surgery and Restorative Dentistry. I’ve also been awarded the Membership Diploma from the Faculty of Dental Surgeons (Edinburgh). My research interests are in the field of resin composites, light curing and amalgam alternatives. I have an interest in rehabilitating tooth surface loss patients with direct resin composites and all aspects of fixed and removable prosthodontics. I am published in the fields of dental composites, removable prosthodontics, endodontics and the rehabilitation of oral cancer patients. I am the year 4 lead for the undergraduate dental programme and is interested in both undergraduate and postgraduate education and has lectured nationally and internationally.
