I am a DPhil Candidate in Musculoskeletal Sciences, funded by a NIHR Doctoral Research Fellowship (DRF). My research focuses on improving the newborn screening pathway for developmental dysplasia of the hip (DDH) through-
- Developing a consensus-based 'core measurement set' to facilitate standardisation in screening practice.
- Investigating the potential for artificial intelligence to improve the reliability and reproducibility of image acquisition and interpretation.
DDH is a significant public health issue and represents the largest cause of hip osteoarthritis in young adults. It leads to total hip replacements in around 29% of these patients. The majority (>70%) then undergo revision operations and struggle with persistent pain affecting their daily lives. This sequelae can be prevented with early accurate diagnosis and treatment.
Prior to commencing my DPhil, I graduated from Peninsula College of Medicine and Dentistry in 2015 with a Merit in my medical degree and a 1st class intercalated BSc in Biosciences from University of Exeter. Whilst undertaking my foundation (FY1/2) and core surgical training (CST1/2) in London, I completed a Postgraduate Certificate in Clinical Education with Merit (University College London) and a Masters in Musculoskeletal Sciences with Distinction (University of Oxford). I became a Specialty Registrar in Orthopaedics on the North West Thames (Imperial) rotation in 2019 and have now completed my ST4 training year. Outside of work, I am a keen cricketer and runner.
