I specialise in the treatment of gynaecological cancers and the delivery of brachytherapy. I have a keen interest in complex targeted radiotherapy delivery using image guidance and adaptive techniques as well as the use of imaging biomarkers during chemo-radiotherapy.
I attained FRCR in 2011 and completed Clinical Oncology training in 2013. Due to my strong research interest I then undertook a MD(Res) at University College London (UCL) which was awarded in 2016. Alongside this I worked to implement the MRI guided cervical brachytherapy service and bladder and bowel preparation for patients undergoing pelvic radiotherapy for gynaecological cancers within University College London Hospital (UCLH). I then took up a substantive consultant post at Imperial College NHS Healthcare Trust (ICHT) treating gynaecolgical and colorectal cancers, and was brachytherapy lead and unit training lead as well as honorary clinical senior lecturer at Imperial College London. Whilst at ICHT I reinstated the cervical brachytherapy service and developed some research avenues. To be able to focus on gynaecological cancers and brachytherapy I then moved back to UCLH where I now work as a substantive consultant. This further specialisation has allowed me to focus on developing and delivering high quality care and follow my research interests. I have a keen interest in complex targeted radiotherapy delivery using image guidance and adaptive techniques and use of imaging biomarkers during chemo-radiotherapy. This interest and drive to improve ensures I can deliver the most up to date treatment to my patients in a timely manner and this will continue to develop in the years to come.
Areas of interest
complex targeted radiotherapy delivery; brachytherapy; cervical cancer; vulvo-vaginal cancer; endometrial cancer; imaging biomarkers during chemoradiation.
Current NHS consultant posts held
Consultant Clinical Oncologist at UCLH and Honorary Clinical Senior Lecturer at UCL
I have completed an MD(Res) investigating the variability and uncertainties in the planning and delivery of radical radiotherapy for cervical cancer. During this I published multiple oncology peer-reviewed papers, presented at national and international meetings and wrote several book chapters. I now review submitted oncology manuscripts for journals including Radiotherapy and Oncology, International Journal of Radiation Oncology Biology Physics, Archives of Gynecology and Obstetrics and Clinical Oncology. I am an Honorary Clinical Senior Lecturer at University College London, and a member of the NCRI Gynaecological Oncology CSG. I work on the international INTERLACE cervical carcinoma trial and am running a feasibility study investigating the role of PET-MRI in patients undergoing chemoradiation for cervical cancer at UCLH. I am also involved in investigating intraoperative radiotherapy and proton beam therapy for recurrent pelvic cancer.
