Midway through my trainin in 2002 I was fortunate to obtain a Tommy's Clinical Research Fellow position in the Maternal and Fetal Health Research Centre at the University of Manchester. I spent two of my three years study at the University of Alberta, Canada, before returning to Manchester in 2005 where I obtained my PhD in trophoblast cell biology. Having completed my fellowsip I returned to Leeds where I undertook sub-specialist training in Fetal Medicine gaining my CCST in 2009. Following this I was appointed Senior Clinical Lecturer in Obstetrics and Fetal Medicine at the University of Manchester and Honorary Consultant St. Mary's Hospital. In 2016 I became Head of Department and was promoted to Chair in 2019.
