I am a Consultant Cardiologist and Honorary Senior Clinical Lecturer at Imperial College London. I work at London Northwest Healthcare Trust and the Royal Brompton Hospital, London.
I qualified from Guy's and St Thomas' Medical School in 2001 and was awarded a PhD in 2012 for research into early imaging markers of cardiovascular disease, particularly in individuals of Indian Asian ethnicity and patients undergoing head and neck radiotherapy. I have published extensively in these areas and also in the assessment of valvular heart disease.
I have accrued extensive experience in exercise and dobutamine stress echocardiography. I also have extensive training in cardiac MRI and coronary CT angiography following my appointment as Cardiac Imaging Fellow at The Royal Brompton.
I see patients with a wide variety of cardiovascular problems such as chest pain, breathlessness, palpitations/arrhythmia, valve disease, hypertension, patent foramen ovale (PFO), heart failure, cardiomyopathy and dyslipidaemia.
Areas of interest
advanced cardiac imaging; chest pain; high blood pressure; valvular heart disease; coronary artery disease; heart failure; palpitations; syncope

My PhD explored potential mechanisms underlying the increased risk of cardiovascular disease amongst Indian Asian and European white individuals recruited into the LOLIPOP (London Life Sciences Prospective Population) study.
My clinical research is currently focused on refining the assessment of valvular heart disease with rest echocardiography, stress echocardiography and cardiac MRI.
