I completed my undergraduate medical degree at the University of Leeds, graduating in 2009 with MBChB (Hons). I worked in the Yorkshire and Humber Deanery first as a foundation trainee, and then as a core surgical trainee, and became a Member of the Royal College of Surgeons of England in 2012. Later that year, I began my PhD entitled 'The Role of Thrombin-activatable Fibrinolysis Inhibitor in Abdominal Aortic Aneurysms' within LICAMM at the University of Leeds. I completed my PhD in October 2015, and, after a two-month placement in INSERM U1176, Paris, I returned to the University of Leeds where I have been working as a postdoctoral research fellow for Prof Mark Kearney. My current work focuses on the role of the insulin-like growth factor receptor and its role in type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease.
