I graduated from the University of Liverpool in 2007 with a First Class BSc (Hons) in Orthoptics, following that I attended the University of Birmingham Medical School, graduating from the Graduate Entry Medicine Course in 2012 with distinction. I have undertaken my postgraduate training in Mersey, Eastern and KSS Deaneries, and am currently a General Surgery Specialist Trainee studying for a PhD. I joined the Surgical Robot Vision Research Group at UCL in October 2018. I am researching the use of novel digital tools to support training in laparoscopic colorectal surgery, and my work focuses on the use of computer vision to optimise surgical workflows, and the use of augmented and mixed reality to support specialist colorectal training programmes. Throughout my training I have been heavily involved in the Association of Surgeons in Training (ASiT), which includes national, independent, pan-surgical trainee representation and the provision of educational courses and resources. I was elected ASiT President in March 2018 and completed my year as ASiT President by organising the successful ASiT International Surgical Conference, which was held in Belfast in March 2019. I am currently the Immediate Past President of ASiT.
