My undergraduate studies (dentistry and medicine) were undertaken at Sheffield University and my postgraduate education at Manchester University. I was appointed to Guy’s Hospital Dental Institute in 1992. I moved to University College Hospital in September 2016. My area of clinical interest is management of patients with head and neck cancer and have a particular interest in the management of salivary gland disease. I have pioneered minimally invasive surgery in the management of head and neck cancer and have led a recent European trial on sentinel node biopsy as well as developments in minimally invasive management of salivary lesions, stones and strictures. I am on the board of Project Harar providing surgical missions in developing countries.
