Clinical Research Fellow & DPhil Student
I am a Clinical Research Fellow working in OCMR, under the supervision of Prof Oliver Rider, Prof Chris Rodgers and Prof Stefan Neubauer. I qualified from Oxford University in 2006, and began my training as a Cardiology Specialist Registrar in the Oxford Deanery in 2010. In 2014 I was awarded a British Heart Foundation Clinical Research Training Fellowship in order to investigate the relationship between obesity, weight loss and heart failure.
My work focuses on high energy phosphate metabolism in obesity and heart failure, and the impact of intentional weight loss on heart function and metabolism. I am particularly interested in heart failure as a multisystem disease, and the impact of dietary and exercise interventions on symptomatology and outcome.
