Professor of Hepatology & Gastroenterology at UCL since October 2016, having been a Senior Lecturer then Reader from 2003 and a Consultant Gastroenterologist in PancreaticoBiliary Medicine at UCLH from 2000. I undertook undergraduate studies in science (theoretical physics) and medicine at University of NSW, Sydney, with postgraduate training mainly at Guy’s and King’s College Hospital, London and advanced endoscopy training (ERCP and endoscopic ultrasound) in Paris, Amsterdam and Indianapolis. Over the last several years I have developed a clinical research programme aimed at improving the diagnosis and treatment of patients with liver and pancreaticobiliary malignancy, and lead a clinical and laboratory-based research group based at the Royal Free Campus.

Research Summary

The research interests of this group centre on the pathogenesis, diagnosis and treatment of biliary tract and pancreatic cancer, as well as benign conditions such as chronic pancreatitis and primary sclerosing cholangitis. These conditions represent a significant number of patients referred for specialist opinion to UCLH and the Royal Free Hospitals, and the activity of the research group is linked closely with the clinical HPB service at the two sites.
