Biography

I am a Clinical Oncologist and specialise in the treatment of breast cancer. My research interests are genetic predisposition to breast cancer particularly lobular breast cancer and DCIS, and identification of biomarkers that predict progression of LCIS and DCIS.

I studied medicine at UCL and trained in oncology at the Middlesex, Royal Free and St Thomas’ Hospitals.

I undertook a PhD in Molecular and Population Genetics at the London Research Institute, Cancer Research UK.
