Related experience

Research

I have a thorough understanding of both clinical and laboratory-based research methods, and have gained a higher degree by Research on the topic of tumour endothelial markers in colorectal cancer.

More recently, my research interests have been more clinically orientated, with publications focused on the improvement of surgical training and contribution and leadership of national audits into current colorectal surgical best practice.

I have authored over 30 peer reviewed publications, and act as an expert article reviewer for a number of surgically orientated journals including the British Journal of Surgery and The Journal of Robotic Surgery.
