Projects per year
I am a Clinical Professor in Cardiac Medicine at the University of East Anglia and an honorary consultant cardiologist at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital, Norwich, Royal Papworth Hospital, Cambridge and the Royal Brompton Hospital, London, UK. I studied medicine at UCL, London and did my postgraduate training initially in internal medicine and then in cardiology in Cambridge and London where I received level 3 accreditation from both the Society of Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance and the European Society of Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance. I hold a Master’s Degree in Medical Education from the University of Bedford and a PhD in Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance tissue characterisation from Imperial College London. My research interests are both clinical and basic science focusing on valvular heart disease, arrhythmia, heart failure and cardiac imaging.
I am the Director of the Norwich Academic Training Office, overseeing the training and research for our Academic Clinical Fellows and Clinical Lecturers.
I also have an interest in epidemiological research and I am Chair of the Population Science and Public Health Section of the European Association of Preventive Cardiology, and a Board Member of the Association. This allows me to participation in Big Data research from UK Databases as well as Internationally.
With Covid19 my group's research focused on the pandemic producing guideline cited research with significant reach to the public. Two examples include:
