My research focuses on the use of cardiovascular magnetic resonance imaging (CMR), magnetic resonance spectroscopy and exercise physiology for early detection of cardiac abnormalities and to find novel treatment for patients with cardiomyopathy, heart failure, aortic valve disease and diabetes mellitus.
I am the Head of Clinical Trials Group at the University of Oxford Centre for Clinical Magnetic Resonance Research (OCMR), Division of Cardiovascular Medicine. I obtained a DPhil (PhD) in Cardiovascular Medicine from Oxford followed by a period of postdoctoral fellowship at OCMR. I am a member of the Royal College of Physicians (MRCP) from London, Master of Internal Medicine (MMed) from Malaysia and primary medical degree (MBChB) from Otago University, New Zealand. I am currently the lead of the British Society of Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance (BSCMR) Heart Failure Research Task Force.
