Personal profile


I have completed higher medical training programmes in General (Internal) Medicine, Clinical Pharmacology and Therapeutics, Chemical Pathology and Metabolic Medicine. As such, I have an interest in many areas of clinical practice, but particularly:

  • Lipid disorders and cardiovascular risk reduction
  • Osteoporosis and fracture risk reduction
  • General biochemical disturbances
  • The biochemistry of acute illness

Research Focus

Most of my research activity has focused on refining cardiovascular risk in individuals. I am currently involved in several trials investigating novel lipid lowering agents in a rare genetic disorder of lipid metabolism. Additionally, I have an interest in medical education and am currently looking at the role of stress during medical simulation and how it might be optimised to enhance learning.


I am involved in teaching the following topics:

  • All aspects of Chemical Pathology (Clinical Biochemistry)
  • Optimising investigations and clinical decision making

Additionally, I coordinate Case Based Learning across the first two years of the undergraduate medical curriculum.
