I graduated in medicine (MBChB, 2013) from the University of Glasgow having also completed an intercalated degree in cardiovascular sciences (BSc, 2011). Subsequently, I completed the academic foundation programme (2013-2015) and academic core surgical programme (2015-2017) in the West of Scotland training deanery. Alongside my clinical commitments, I undertook a part-time master's degree in surgical sciences, with the University of Edinburgh, and my thesis focused on surgical imaging. During this time I also became a member of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow (MRCS, 2017). Following this, I secured an NIHR Academic Clinical Fellowship in Vascular Surgery in the Yorkshire and Humber School of Surgery (2017-2018). Throughout this period I enhanced my academic competencies by completing a postgraduate certificate in health research (PgCert, 2018).
At present I hold a BHF Clinical Research Training Fellowship (2018-2021) which funds my PhD focussing on the role of the mechanoreceptor Piezo1 in abdominal aortic aneurysmal disease. I have also secured funding from the Lonescu Travelling Fellowship (2018) to visit the internationally renowned aortic centre in Munich to develop my murine microsurgical skills. More recently I have attained funding from the LICAMM Scholarship of Teaching and Learning Scheme (SoTL) to develop the use of virtual reality in medical education focusing on vascular surgery.
My clinical research interests at present are centred around patient risk stratification based on markers obtained from routine clinical imaging. Topics have centred around patient frailty based on morphometric sarcopaenia and obesity based on morphometric adiposity. Previously I have also undertaken national collaborative research evaluating patient surveillance and outcomes in Scotland following endovascular aneurysm repair.

Alongside Professor Julian Scott, I co-supervise academic foundation year doctors during their academic rotation within the West Yorkshire training deanery.
I regularly volunteer my time for undergraduate teaching. At present, I lecture and deliver ward based teaching to final year medical students visiting the Leeds Vascular Institute (Leeds General Infirmary). I also supervise numerous undergraduate medical student research projects. I also act as a mentor to numerous medical students through the University of Leeds Surgical Society, Cutting Edge. In my spare time, I also volunteer to help with the University of Leeds Widening Access to Medicine initiative.
