I graduated from the University of Birmingham’s Medical School in 2003. I worked as a junior doctor in the East of England and came to Leeds in 2008 to continue specialist training in Histopathology. After completing a PGCE in 2012 I spent some time teaching general science and biology to high school students.

I joined the University of Leeds in 2015 and have been a member of staff in the Leeds Institute of Medical Education since then.
