MBBS, B.Med.Sci (Hons I, Medal), FRACP
I am a clinical cardiologist with strong interests in general adult cardiology, cardiovascular disease prevention and cardiac ultrasound. I studied medicine at the University of Sydney prior to training in general medicine at Royal Prince Alfred Hospital. I completed my specialist cardiology training at Westmead Hospital, where I also dedicated a year towards setting up novel outpatient cardiology services aimed at seeing patients with chest pain, heart failure, and disturbances of heart rhythm in a timely fashion. These clinics focused on providing streamlined access to specialist cardiac services and cardiovascular disease prevention in high-risk populations.
I have a strong interest in clinical research and am currently completing my PhD which focuses on novel clinical approaches for cardiovascular disease prevention including utilising mobile health technology and evaluating Rapid Access Cardiology models of care. As part of my PhD, I have authored several papers on cardiac service development and cardiovascular disease prevention. Additionally, I have had the exciting opportunity to present my research at both national and international conferences. I also have a strong interest in teaching and am a Clinical Lecturer at the University of Sydney.
When I am not working, I love exploring Sydney culture with friends and family including my pug, and travelling the world looking for new places to explore and hike with my wife Jenny.
From June 2021, I will start a 2-year clinical research fellowship at the Population Health Research Institute (PHRI), McMaster University and affiliated hospitals in Ontario, Canada. During this time, my training will feature an integrated clinical and research program dedicated to fields of cardio-oncology and advanced echocardiography. Cardio-oncology is a rapidly growing field focused on the early identification and management of cardiovascular toxicities from cancer therapies, the prevention of heart disease in cancer survivors, and cardiovascular decision-making in patients with active cancer. I look forward to returning to Peninsula Cardiology Group in 2023.
