About me

I am a Consultant Ophthalmologist at The Lister Hospital in London. After graduating with a first in Immunology at Imperial College, I qualified in Medicine in St. Bartholomew's Hospital, London. Specialising in inflammatory eye diseases and corneal and cataract surgery, I held a research registrar post at Oxford, before training in clinical ophthalmology in Bristol, Manchester and Harvard, USA. My PhD was on mechanisms of corneal transplant failure. I have worked in developing countries and also with ORBIS, the international flying eye hospital. In addition to general ophthalmology, I have developed a local and tertiary referral service for cornea, uveitis and inflammatory eye disease.
As well as being a practicing clinician and teacher, I also continue to carry out clinical research into the prevention of blindness.
