I am studying the genetics of common elastic tissue disorders via large systematic association studies. This research constitutes a uniquely interesting area of study, with wide implications for patients across the major surgical specialities. 

In my spare team, I enjoy reading, cycling, long-distance running, playing chess, college badminton and attending talks/debates at the Oxford Union and a handful of Oxford Societies.
