I read physiological sciences as an undergraduate at Fitzwilliam College, University of Cambridge before moving to Oriel College, University of Oxford to complete my clinical training.

In 2011, I completed a PhD at the Kennedy Institute of Rheumatology, Imperial College London. This focused on the molecular changes that occur during the initiation and early progression of osteoarthritis (OA). 

My current research interests are developing clinical trials as part of the Reconstructive Surgery Trials Network and the pathogenesis of osteoarthritis. The latter work is undertaken at the Kennedy Institute of Rheumatology.
