He graduated from the Universities of Cambridge and Oxford. He trained in the Eastern Deanery for general and interventional cardiology, in both coronary and structural intervention. He undertook a PhD at Cambridge University investigating vulnerability in coronary plaques using radio-frequency intravascular ultrasound and biomarkers which resulted in several publications including the VIVA study. He was awarded a number of prizes for his working including the BCIS Young Investigators Award 2010 and JACC Img Young Author of the Year Award 2011. He undertook an Interventional Fellowship in Paris in 2010 at Center Hospitalier Bichat with Profs Vahanian and Steg. His programme of research into the vulnerable plaque continues with a multi-modality approach including VH-IVUS, OCT and PET-CT. He is PI on several database projects examining the health outcomes from coronary and structural interventions using the BCIS database. Clinically, his interests include, coronary intervention, including intravascular imaging, rotational atherectomy, PPCI and alcohol septal ablations of HOCM. He also undertakes structural interventions including mitral and aortic valve interventions and closures of LAAO, ASD, PFO, PIVSD and paravalvular leaks.
