GP and DPhil student

I am a Wellcome Trust funded DPhil student, a GP at a practice in Oxford and also work as a community cardiologist. Within the Nuffield Department for Primary Care Health Sciences, I am attached to the Centre for Evidence-Based Medicine (CEBM) and the Infections and Acute Care Research Group. My interests range from the use of novel technologies in the primary care setting, such as creatinine and malaria point of care devices; to alternative therapies, such as the role of oil-pulling in promoting oro dental hygiene.

Prior to starting my DPhil, I was an NIHR funded academic clinical fellow (ACF). During my ACF years, I developed a keen interest in improving the diagnosis and management of bacterial infections. My DPhil focuses on the use of non-antibiotic treatments to manage common bacterial infections, specifically, the use of cranberry extract in the treatment of Urinary Tract Infections.
