She graduated from Southampton medical school in 2004 and worked as a junior doctor in Salisbury, Warwick and New Zealand before taking up a registrar post in Geriatric/General Internal Medicine in Leicester in 2008. Between 2011 and 2014, she completed a MD at the University of Leicester researching cerebral haemodynamics in idiopathic Parkinson’s disease. Following her MD, she was appointed first as an academic clinical lecturer in Geriatric Medicine in 2014, and then as an honorary senior lecturer in 2016, where she continues to research cerebral haemodynamics and autoregulation in neurodegenerative disorders. She has additional research interests in cerebral haemodynamics in post-operative cognitive decline and heart failure.
