About me

Choosing cancer treatments can be a complex and anxious business. I aim to understand your priorities and put them together with everything we know about the clinical evidence so that you can make the best decision.

I qualified from Cambridge University (preclinical medicine) in 1998 and Oxford University Clinical School in 2001, before completing Clinical Oncology training in Oxford.

I learned advanced radiotherapy techniques in Australia, at the Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre in Melbourne, and returned to Oxford as a consultant oncologist in 2014.

I treat Breast Cancer and Head & Neck Cancers.

I am proficient in advanced radiotherapy techniques including IMRT, VMAT and IGRT, which are used to target radiation therapy and to minimise side effects.

I also use chemotherapy, biological therapy, hormone therapy and immunotherapy, choosing the best targeted approach based on molecular and genetic tumour markers in light of proven clinical evidence.

My doctorate studied tumour imaging and biomarkers and I gained a DPhil in Radiobiology at the University of Oxford in 2013.

I also have an interest in Clinical Ethics and Medicolegal investigation.
