I started in critical care at University College London Hospitals trust in 1997. I have held roles in practice development and education before moving into research. I have been involved in the Xtreme Everest Oxygen Research Consortium since its inception in 2004, running medical research expeditions at altitude and in hypoxic chambers. I moved to University Hospital Southampton in 2012, and manage the multidisciplinary critical care research group in partnership with a medical colleague. I completed the ENB 100 at South Bank University and a Masters in Critical Care at Imperial, and am now undertaking a PhD at the University of Southampton related to tolerance of hypoxia.
