About me

Clinical role

I work one day in the Advanced Interventions Service, with the rest of my working week being spent as the consultant of a busy acute admissions ward. My role involves the assessment of new patients referred to the AIS, and providing management of patients being treated in the service.

I am recognised by the GMC as a clinical and educational trainer for psychiatric trainees.


Before doing medicine, I did a degree in Pharmacology at the University of Dundee (1997-2001). I went on to complete a PhD in Pharmacology and Neuroscience (2001-2005), and then worked as a postdoctoral researcher in the University of Dundee.

I studied medicine in Dundee and qualified as a doctor in 2013. I trained as a psychiatrist in Tayside and passed my MRCPsych exam in 2018. After completing my higher specialist training in 2021, I was recognised by the GMC as a specialist in both General Adult Psychiatry and Liaison Psychiatry.
