About me

I graduated from University of Madras, India and obtained MD in General Medicine from one of the prestigious central institutes (JIPMER) in India. I was awarded a Gold medal by the University for the most outstanding performance in the MD examination.

My general oncology training started in Republic of Ireland and then I spent fours years in the Oxford Medical Oncology training programme leading to the completion of specialist training in oncology (CCST). I took part in various research activities during my training and I was awarded the American Society of Oncology Merit Award for the quality research paper abstract submitted in one of their meetings.

In 2005 I was appointed as a Consultant Medical Oncologist at Portsmouth Hospitals NHS Trust. As an oncologist with a special interest in colorectal, lung cancer and mesothelioma, my expertise is treating cancer patients with chemotherapy, biological therapies, targeted therapies and also immunotherapies.

I also use molecular tests like next generation sequencing (NGS) and genetic tests to guide treatment decisions and reduce the toxicities from treatment. In addition, I take part in many clinical trials and I was the principal investigator of a few of the trials. I have extensive knowledge in managing symptoms associated with cancer and I work very closely with the palliative care and pain team.
