Training and Background

I studied medicine at the University of Cambridge and gained my membership from the Royal College of Physicians during my early postgraduate training at the Oxford Radcliffe Hospitals NHS Trust. I completed my specialist training in Renal Medicine within the South Thames Renal Programme. During this time I completed a PhD as a Wellcome Trust Clinical PhD Fellow at the MRC Clinical Sciences Centre, Imperial College.

In my private practice I am able to consult on all areas of adult nephrology including acute and chronic kidney disease, proteinuria, nephrological causes of non visible haematuria, hypertension, diabetic kidney disease, renovascular disease, polycystic kidney disease and glomerulonephritis including nephrotic syndrome (minimal change disease, FSGS and membranous nephropathy), lupus nephritis and ANCA vasculitis as well as queries related to haemodialysis. As a renal specialist I am also able to offer advice to patients with early stages of chronic kidney disease and give advice on how to prevent progression to more advanced stages of the condition.
I am Speciality Group Lead for Renal Disorders for the NIHR South Thames Clinical Research Network. My clinical research interests are focused on patients with the autoimmune renal disease and I am an established investigator for clinical studies in IgA nephropathy, primary FSGS and lupus nephritis alongside renal anaemia and dialysis studies. Nationally I am an elected member of the Renal Association Council.
