About me

I am a Consultant Cardiologist and an expert in the management of atrial fibrillation (AF, irregular heart beats), including catheter ablation. I am part of the award winning team at Barts Heart Centre pioneering day-case AF Ablation treatments and perform all key therapies for heart rhythm problems, including pacemaker and ICD insertions. My role leading the institution of new patient-centred safety measures at Barts, which aim to minimise complication risks of procedures, has given me a high degree of expertise and experience in managing and preventing such problems.

I have invented several new cardiac devices, and my track record in innovation has been recognised by my appointement to the European Heart Rhythm Association’s Innovation committee.

I have performed over 500 catheter ablation procedures for atrial fibrillation and other arrhythmias, and over 500 pacemaker and ICD procedures, including device implantation and generator changes.

I am a committee member on two of the European Heart Rhythm Association committees. One is the “Standards setting committee” which sets the exams required for accreditation in pacemaker therapy across Europe. My work in cardiac innovation was recognised by my appointment to the EHRA Innovations committee, which promotes innovation in cardiac devices across Europe. I am a faculty member of several national and international congresses, including the British Heart Rhythm Society, EHRA and the European Cardiac Arrhythmia Society.

I am the lead for Local Safety Standards for Invasive Procedures within Barts Electrophysiology. In addition to my clinical work, I hold honorary positions at University College London and Queen Mary University of London, and collaborate closely with Medical Engineering and basic science departments in these institutions.
