ST5 Clinical Radiology Trainee
I am a clinical radiology trainee with an interest in research. During my medical training, I completed a PhD in developmental neurobiology and confocal imaging with Prof AH Brand in Cambridge. I then worked on neural fate determination in the developing vertebrate nervous system as a Wellcome Travelling Research Fellow with Prof DJ Anderson in Los Angeles. I have been committed to musculoskeletal radiology throughout my radiology training and have worked on several imaging projects including developmental hand anomalies, paediatric scoliosis, scaphoid fractures, vertebral fractures/osteoporosis and imaging of bone metastases. Bridging my basic science research, I am particularly interested in the radiological imaging of skeletal defects due to genetic disorders. I am now nearing the end of my training and aiming for a consultant post in musculoskeletal radiology at a tertiary referral centre with potential for research opportunities.
