Background Information
Biography

I am an interventional cardiologist and clinical lead in Cardiology at West Middlesex. I have a clinical interest in ischaemic heart disease, and perform cardiac catheterisation and coronary angioplasty/stenting procedures on regular lists at Hammersmith Hospital. I have led the development of direct (immediate) angioplasty for patients suffering acute ST elevation MI from the Hounslow and Twickenham population, and developed day case transfer of patients with non-ST elevation acute coronary syndromes to shorten inpatient waits at West Middlesex. 
I also have a specific interest in left ventricular dysfunction and heart failure. I established a heart failure service at West Middlesex since my appointment in 2003 and this includes the implantation of multi-site pacemakers and defibrillators in selected patients.

Research interests

I have research interests in heart failure and ventricular dysfunction. I am currently investigating novel clinical approaches to the treatment of anaemia associated with heart failure. I have previously investigated the mechanisms underlying heart failure due to both ischaemic heart disease and non-ischaemic cardiomopathy. I have published my work in peer- reviewed journals and presented at multiple international meetings. Part of my work was submitted as a thesis to The University of London for which I was awarded the degree of Doctor of Medicine (MD).
