Profile

I am an Associate Professor in Clinical Oncology at the University of Leeds and Honorary Consultant Clinical Oncologist at Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust. I specialise in the radiation treatment of urological cancers and was appointed as a clinical academic in 2014. My research aims to optimise radiation treatments to improve overall survival and reduce treatment related side effects. I am co-investigator on a number of multi-centre CRUK funded radiotherapy clinical trials and Leeds Co-Investigator on CRUK funded Advanced Radiotherapy Technologies Network. I am a member of the EAU (European Association of Urologists) Prostate Cancer Guidelines group.

 

 

 

Research interests

I am a member of the Radiotherapy Research Group (Radiation Biology and Therapeutics). My research interests are personalised radiotherapy delivery, radiotherapy clinical trials and patient reported outcomes. My technical radiotherapy research areas are optimising treatment delivery for pelvic cancers by incorporating MR imaging, using Intensity Modulated Radiotherapy (IMRT) and Image Guided Radiotherapy (IGRT) and delivering image guided brachytherapy (IGBT).
