About me

I am a Consultant Cardiologist at the University Hospital of Wales in Cardiff where I was appointed in 2008. My sub specialty interest is in cardiac imaging where the bulk of my work is in echocardiography and nuclear cardiology. The University Hospital of Wales is a busy tertiary cardiac surgical centre and I have close links with the cardiac surgeons especially in the area of valvular heart disease.
I have a strong commitment to delivering high standards of care and am the clinical lead for quality and safety within the cardiothoracic unit at UHW.
I have a wide range of teaching commitments in both undergraduate and postgraduate education.

Areas of interest

My main area of interest is in echocardiography with specific interest in transoesphageal echo and dobutamine stress echo. I have a major involvement in the management of valvular heart disease but also many other aspects of general cardiology.
