Research summary

I lead a translational research programme focussed on improving outcomes of patients with peripheral arterial disease and diabetic foot complications, both major global health issues. I have adopted a bench-to-bedside approach: investigating the biological mechanisms of these diseases to identify novel therapeutic targets and strategies; developing new cardiovascular devices to overcome current complications and limitations; harnessing engineering innovations for disease modelling and monitoring; and contributing to a range if academic- and industry-led clinical trials. 

Teaching summary

My teaching commitments include: undergraduate clinical and academic teaching, postgraduate clinical and academic research and taught courses, and cross-disciplinary teaching initiatives (SLMS miniMD programme lead).
