I have trained in paediatric nephrology and paediatrics in the UK, North America and across three states in Australia. I am currently a consultant paediatric nephrologist at Sydney Children’s Hospital, Randwick.
Originally from the UK, I undertook my medical degree at the University of Bristol, and was awarded honours. I also received the university prize for paediatrics. I undertook my fellowship in paediatric nephrology at The Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto, Canada. I obtained a masters in clinical epidemiology from the University of Toronto, Canada.

- Urinary tract infections

- Nephrotic syndrome
- Congenital abnormalities of the kidney and urinary tract
- High blood pressure
- Chronic kidney disease
- Fluid and electrolyte disorders
- Kidney stones
- Complement-mediated renal diseases
- Hereditary renal disease
My particular clinical interests include kidney transplantation, complement mediated disorders, IgA nephropathy and hypertension.
