I currently hold a MRC Clinician Scientist award enabling me to investigate the roles of clock proteins in respiratory disease. I also work one day a week at UHSM as a lung transplant consultant.


I trained in medicine and physiology at University College London. During this time I secured a Wellcome vacation scholarship investigating whether proteinuria could be a sensitive marker of renal dysfunction after cardiac surgery. My research in chronobiology was stimulated after securing a MRC clinical research training fellowship in 2007. In 2010 I was named as the British Thoracic Society's young investigator of the year. After my MRC fellowship I was fortunate enough to secure an academic clinical lectureship allowing me to complete my clinical training whilst continuing my research. In 2013 I left for Toronto to train in lung transplantation. After securing a MRC clinician scientist award in 2014 I returned to Manchester to continue my research into how circadian rhythyms can alter lung disease.
