Summary

 

Summary

I am a Clinical Lecturer in Pain Medicine, Advanced Pain Medicine Fellow and Speciality Registrar (ST6) in Anaesthesia.

I was awarded an Imperial College Wellcome Research Fellowship in August 2013 and completed an NIHR portfolio study in somatosensory and metabolic profiling of experimental burn injury associated pain models. I have also held an NIHR Academic Clinical Fellowship in the department of Anaesthetics, Pain Medicine and Intensive Care at Imperial College. I graduated from Imperial College Faculty of Medicine (MBBS) in 2005 and have a BSc in Psychology, Psychiatry and Cognitive Neuroscience from Imperial College.  My clinical training has been within the London Deanery and with anaesthetic training within the Imperial School of Anaesthesia.

I was the first Anaesthesia Journal Trainee Fellow, holding the post between September 2013 – 2014 and am currently assistant editor for Anaesthesia Cases. I am active in trainee collaborative research and am the vice chair for PLAN (Pan-London Perioperative Audit and Research Network, www.uk-plan.net).

My current acute pain research interests are in burn injury associated pain and chronic pain research interests relate to diabetic neuropathy.
