I am an academic clinician in paediatric anaesthesia with a parallel research interest in multi-modal cardiac imaging. I hope to develop the role of high-resolution imaging as a biomarker in cardiac disease and apply this to understanding right heart dysfunction.


  • The use of three-dimensional modelling to understand right ventricular structure and function
  • The application of machine learning approaches to identify the environmental, physiological and genetics determinants of right heart dysfunction
  • Survival analysis in right heart dysfunction

    Three-dimensional right ventricular model
