I am an NIHR Clinical Lecturer in Radiology at Imperial and a Cardiothoracic Radiology Fellow at the Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust. My research interests include lung cancer radiomics, new imaging biomarkers in immuno-oncology, and deep learning in chest and cardiac imaging. 

Prior to joining Imperial, I was an Academic Clinical Fellow in Oxford where I researched on applying hyperpolarised xenon MRI to a range of functional lung imaging applications. During this appointment, I have completed my core specialty training in clinical radiology and attained my FRCR.

I qualified in medicine from the University of Oxford, where I have also obtained an undergraduate degree in Engineering Science and a DPhil in Computer Vision.
