I am a fellowship trained Academic Urological Surgeon working in Glasgow, with a special interest in robotic surgery for advanced prostate and bladder cancer. I successfully set up, and trained members of the Robotic Pelvic Cancer Service in the West of Scotland. As a partnership between NHS Greater Glasgow & Clyde and the University of Glasgow, we have delivered a number of practice-changing clinical surgical trials over the last 5-years.
At Nuffield Health I manage patients with disorders of the prostate and bladder. I offer the whole spectrum of management, from initial diagnosis, to treatment and subsequent follow-up.

I am currently a Clinical Senior Lecturer and CRUK Clinician Scientist in Uro-oncology at the CRUK: Beatson Institute and the Institute for Cancer Sciences at the University of Glasgow. I carried out my PhD (2007-2011) at the Beatson under the supervision of Professors Owen J Samson and Hing Y Leung, looking at the role of Wnt signalling in bladder cancer (funded by the MRC and CRUK). My current research interest is in understanding the mechanisms of treatment resistance in advanced prostate cancer. As part of the Urology Group at the Beatson, the work in my laboratory uses novel in vivo models in conjunction with patient samples to interrogate the disease processes in advanced and treatment resistant prostate cancer. This is funded by a £1.5 million Clinician Scientist Fellowship from CRUK, making me one of only 3 Urologists in the UK to currently hold such an award.
