Clinical Research Fellow & DPhil Student
Blood Conservation in Arthroplasty
My research interests centre on blood management in Trauma and Orthopaedic surgery. In particular, how to reduce blood loss during joint replacement surgery and how to optimise recovery from anaemia postoperatively.
I studied for my medical degree at Oxford University and Imperial College London, became a member of the Royal College of Surgeons England in 2014 and commenced higher surgical training in Trauma and Orthopaedic surgery in 2017. I am now taking time out of training to pursue my academic interest and was appointed NIHR Cochrane Clinical Research Fellow at Oxford NHS Blood and Transplant in 2018. Following my appointment, I was awarded a Clarendon Scholarship to undertake a DPhil under the supervision of Dr. Lise Estcourt, Mr. Antony Palmer, Dr. Paula Dhiman, Mr. Ben Kendrick and Prof. Gary Collins.
