Academic Clinical Fellow
I studied medicine at the University of Cambridge and graduated in 2010. Before this I studied astrophysics with a specific interest in theoretical cosmology and obtained my PhD in 2006 from the University of Colorado. My clinical interests are in paediatric anaesthesia, major general and neuroanaesthesia. I am also the LTFT trainee representative for the East of England Deanery.
I am interested in perioperative medicine, physiological simulations and health systems. I am currently a Specialist Registrar in Anaesthesia and a NIHR Academic Clinical Fellow in the University Department of Anaesthesia.
My current research projects are:
Simulation of cerebral oxygen diffusion in TBI patients
We are developing a computational model of oxygen diffusion from a cerebral capillary to investigate the relative importance of factors influencing the overall cerebral oxygenation. The aim is to better inform treatment strategies for patients with traumatic brain injury.
Network analysis of the emergency surgical pathway
We are using data from the electronic care records database at Cambridge University Hospitals to apply network/systems analysis tools to better understand the current system with its interconnectivity, bottlenecks, and potential areas of inefficiency. The aim of this improved understanding is to then explore pathways or protocols which may improve clinical outcomes.
