About me

I am a Consultant Kidney Doctor or Nephrologist at the Renal and Transplantation Unit, St George's University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. I studied medicine at the University of Cambridge and gained his membership from the Royal College of Physicians during my early postgraduate training at the Oxford Radcliffe Hospitals NHS Trust. I completed his specialist training in Renal Medicine within the South Thames Renal Programme. During this time I completed his PhD as a Wellcome Trust Clinical PhD Fellow at the MRC Clinical Sciences Centre, Imperial College.

I spent my first 5 years as a Consultant at the Renal Unit, King's College Hospital where I looked after a satellite unit cohort of haemodialysis patients, managed renal ward inpatients and provided a weekly consult service for patients with acute kidney injury and chronic kidney disease at the Trust’s Princess Royal University Hospital campus.

My outpatient work focuses on his specialist interest of autoimmune renal disease as well as general nephrology outpatients including chronic kidney disease, diabetic nephropathy and hypertension. 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.

I am Speciality Group Lead for Renal Disorders for the NIHR South Thames Clinical Research Network and Co-chair of the Vascular Access workstream for the South London Renal Clinical Alliance. Nationally I am an elected member of the Renal Association Council.

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.
