About me

I am a Consultant Gynaecologist at Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust an the Clinical Lead for Colposcopy.

I received my medical degree from the Humboldt-University of Berlin, in Germany, and split my specialist training in Obstetrics & Gynaecology between Berlin and Oxford. I spent a further 4 years as a postdoctoral research fellow at Harvard Medical School / Brigham & Women's Hospital in Boston, USA, where I have been working on the molecular mechanisms of human papillomavirus (HPV) associated carcinogenesis and drug discovery strategies for cervical cancer.

In 2011, I joined the University of Oxford as a Clinical Lecturer and was appointed as Senior Fellow in Women's Health at the Nuffield Department of Reproductive & Women's Health in 2017. I have a strong clinical interest in HPV associated cervical disease and am leading a research programme in the field of the molecular basis and clinical managment of cervical dysplasia.

In addition, I am a board member of the British Society for Colposcopy and Cervical Pathology (BSCCP) and an accredited colposcopy trainer. I am also an elected member of the Society for Reproductive Investigation (SRI). In my spare time I volunteer as expert reviewer for Jo's Cervical Cancer Trust Charity.
