I divide my time between being a BRC Senior Fellow in Fetal Medicine at the Nuffield Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, and Consultant in Fetal Medicine and Obstetrics at St George's Healthcare NHS Trust in London. I obtained my medical degree at the University of Sheffield. I undertook my MD thesis at the University of London, on the prediction of pre-eclampsia using uterine artery Doppler. During this time I was a Research Fellow at the Harris Birthright Research Centre for Fetal Medicine. Following this I completed my specialisation in Obstetrics and Gynaecology, and undertook subspecialist training in Maternal and Fetal Medicine while a lecturer at St George's, University of London. My  clinical and research interests include obstetric ultrasound, normal and abnormal fetal growth, pre-eclampsia and fetal diagnosis and treatment.
