I commenced a Cancer Research UK Clinical Trial Fellowship in April 2022.

Research interests

My current research is focused on the design, set-up and conduct of radiotherapy clinical trials. I am Co-Chief Investigator of the Yorkshire Cancer Research-funded Pelvis Or Involved Node Treatment: Eradicating Recurrence in Prostate Cancer (POINTER-PC) UK multicentre phase 3 randomised controlled trial. I am interested in novel radiotherapy techniques, including stereotactic radiotherapy, proton beam therapy and the delivery of a second course of radiotherapy close to a previously treated area (known as re-irradiation). My clinical practice is focused on Uro-oncology (prostate and bladder cancers).
