 I am a Critical Care Consultant at the Royal Free Hospital with research interests that include oxygenation in critically ill patients and those undergoing major surgery, mitochondrial function, oxidative stress biology, and exercise testing and training for patients awaiting surgery. I have also been conducting research at high altitude for the last 15 years and am a Director of Xtreme Everest. I am the Director of the UCL Centre for Altitude, Space and Extreme Environment Medicine and course lead for the UCL BSc module in Space and Extreme Environment Physiology. I am the critical care lead for the High Level Isolation Unit at the Royal Free hospital, responsible for patients with viral haemorrhage fever. I am also the Editor in Chief of the Journal of the Intensive Care Society. I am an advocate for academic anaesthetists in training, with roles at the National Institute of Academic Anesthesia (NIAA), National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) and Royal College of Anaesthetists (RCoA). I am also passionate about equality and diversity, sitting on the Division of Surgery Athena Swan committee.

Research Summary

I have been involved in research for more than 25 years and have been employed as a substantive clinical academic at UCL since August 2011. I was promoted to Reader in 2017. My main research interest is the physiology of oxygen delivery in humans and the effect of oxygenation on perioperative and critically ill patients. I am also actively involved in research looking at improving outcomes around the time of liver transplantation, exercise testing and training and goal-directed fluid therapy. Our research group is currently conducting studies exploring the importance of bioenergetic and redox pathways in the critically ill and patients undergoing major surgery.
