I graduated in 2015 with an intercalated BSc in Cardiovascular Medicine (first class) and MBChB (hons). After completing the Academic Foundation Programme (F1/F2), I was awarded a BHF CRTF to fund a PhD supervised by Dr Richard Cubbon and Professor Mark Kearney. I am currently an NIHR Academic Clinical Fellow in Cardiology (ST3).
