I qualified from Edinburgh Medical School in 2015 and currently serve as a cardiology registrar and clinical research fellow in Hull, East Yorkshire. Additionally, I hold the role of Junior Editor for the European Heart Journal – Case Reports.

Under the guidance of Professor Andrew Clark and Dr. Joe Cuthbert, I am researching on the challenges of heart failure as a comorbidity. My main work will investigate the prevalence of undetected heart failure that were masked by loop diuretics in the community.
