MA Hons (Cantab) MBBS MRCP MRCGP MSc
Clinical Research Fellow, DPhil
I am a General Practitioner and DPhil Clinical Research Fellow working with Professor Richard McManus exploring the role of blood pressure self-monitoring in pregnancy to improve the management of maternal hypertensive conditions in low- and middle-income settings. Blood pressure self-monitoring in this context has the potential to improve diagnosis, monitoring and medication titration, improve women’s involvement in their health care and refocus health system resources.
My interests are global and maternal health, infectious disease and health systems research. On finishing my hospital and primary care clinical training in London I completed an MSc in Epidemiology at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. I was supported by an NIHR In-Practice Fellowship to continue to develop my research training whilst working part-time as a GP in north London.
