I am proud to have been appointed to my alma mater as a consultant. My surgical interests are predominantly in off-pump coronary artery bypass grafting, total arterial revascularisation, mitral valve repair and minimally invasive surgery (including minimally invasive aortic valve replacement, minimally invasive mitral valve surgery and as part of the robotic cardiac team).

I maintain a strong academic profile and have published in some of the most prestigious medical and cardiac surgical journals in the world. I remain actively engaged in clinical research.
