Research & Publications - Coastal Cardiology

I won a British Heart Foundation clinical research fellowship in 2010, studying patients with inherited heart disease. This led to the award of my MD (Res) degree from University College London. I have been awarded grants from independent bodies for research, and am actively involved with heart failure research at the Royal Bournemouth Hospital.

I am well published in international peer-reviewed journals in my sub-specialty interests, and have authored book chapters. I am on the editorial review board of two high profile Cardiology journals. I present my work at national and international Cardiology conferences, and remains committed to the application of contemporary clinical research for my patients.
