Experience and Qualifications

About me

  • I am the Professor of Ophthalmology at the University of Surrey and a Consultant Ophthalmic Surgeon at the Royal Surrey County Hospital, as well as at St. Mary’s Hospital, London.  I treat patients with many ophthalmic problems, but have a particular interest in retinal disease and in surgery for cataract and glaucoma.
    I read for my medical degree at Cambridge University and took a first in neurophysiology before training as an ophthalmic surgeon at Moorfields Eye Hospital, London. I joined the MRC Clinical Sciences Centre at the Hammersmith Hospital in 2006 for my research training, which was supported by a Medical Research Council Clinical Research Training Fellowship, and received a PhD in immunobiology from Imperial College London in 2009.
    I subsequently completed my ophthalmology training as a National Institute of Health Research Academic Clinical Lecturer at the UCL Institute of Ophthalmology and Moorfields Eye Hospital, having completed Fellowship training at Moorfields Eye Hospital and at Harvard Medical School.
    I was accredited onto the Specialist Register as an ophthalmologist in September 2011 and received a UK National Institute of Health Research Career Development Fellowship in 2012, which currently supports my clinical and research work at the University of Surrey and the Royal Surrey County Hospital NHS Foundation Trust.
