BM BCh (Oxon) BA MRCPsych
Honorary Teaching Fellow, OPPC
- Specialty Trainee in Child and Adolescent Psychiatry
I studied preclinical and clinical medicine at Balliol College, Oxford University. I then completed my Foundation and Core Psychiatry training in Oxford, before gaining my specialty training number in Child and Adolescent Psychiatry. I have been involved in teaching for many years, teaching oxford University medical students, and I was a member of the MRCPsych course committee prior to its evolution into the OPPC.
I have an active research interest in Child and Adolescent Psychiatric epidemiology and have published multiple peer reviewed papers, particularly in the area of Paediatric Bipolar disorder
I have also held a variety of representative roles within the Deanery and various trusts, currently sitting on the Medical Staffing Committee, Trainee advisory committee and taking part in ARCP appeals. I have led several quality improvement projects, including the introduction of new handover protocols in Oxford and Milton Keynes, and designed an innovative Patient Safety Learning Forum.
