Academic Background: I completed my Rheumatology and General Medicine training in the London/South Thames rotation in 2014. I did MRCP in Rheumatology in 2013 and an MSc in Rheumatology from Kings College London in 2014. My master’s research explored the role FDG-PET imaging in large vessel vasculitis and was conducted at Brighton and Sussex University Hospitals and Guys and St. Thomas Hospital. I worked as a Consultant Rheumatologist at Poole Hospital NHS Foundation Trust for a year before moving to Yorkshire and have been a Consultant Rheumatologist at Calderdale and Huddersfield NHS Foundation Trust since April 2016. I provide services in general rheumatology and have a particular interest in managing vasculitis and connective tissue conditions. I am the lead for musculoskeletal ultrasound and have successfully led on establishing this service in the rheumatology department.  I have a special interest in management of large vessel vasculitis and the role of different imaging modalities in managing these conditions.
