I graduated from UCL with degrees in Medical Sciences with Neuroscience (BSc) and Medicine (MBBS), with research experience from three leading neuroscience laboratories and a specialisation in developmental neurobiology. I completed my Foundation clinical training in Cambridge and my initial neurosurgical training in Glasgow. Subsequently, I was awarded the Kevin O'Riordan PhD Fellowship in Liverpool, for which I am working on anti-tumour immunity and immunotherapy in glioblastoma, supported by the Royal College of Surgeons of England and the University of Liverpool Glioblastoma Fund.
