MB ChB 2006 Edin; FRACP 2018 - Internal medicine


I studied medicine in Edinburgh then completed gastroenterology training in 2017 following spells in Waikato and Christchurch. I then undertook an advanced fellowship at the Edinburgh IBD unit, where I cared for complex patients with inflammatory bowel disease as part of a highly specialised unit, performed a high volume of endoscopy and took part in further research in this area. 

I have been a consultant at Waikato Hospital since 2019 where I care for patients with a broad range of GI disease and continue to pursue these research interests. I am in private practice at Cambridge Specialist Centre.
