I am a medical doctor and a DPhil candidate at the Nuffield Department of Women's & Reproductive Health, John Radcliffe Hospital. I received my medical degree from University of Bristol in 2013, with a BSc (Hons) Medical Physics & Bioengineering from University College London (one-year intercalated degree). Following medical school, I did rotations in Internal Medicine (8 months), General Surgery and Orthopaedics, Psychiatry, and Emergency Medicine with some Obstetrics & Gynaecology, as part of my foundation year training.
I then pursued my MSc Clinical Embryology in October 2015 at University of Oxford with two merit scholarships to explore my interests in reproductive sciences and research, with the view of pursuing a clinical academic career in either Obstetrics & Gynaecology or Reproductive Endocrinology. During my MSc, I had the fantastic opportunity to work with the Oxford Endometriosis CaRe Centre where I researched on exosomes and endometriosis and co-presented the work at the 13th World Congress on Endometriosis in Vancouver in May 2017. After my MSc, I was offered to be a specialty trainee in Internal Medicine where I did four-month rotations in Endocrinology & Diabetes, Stroke, and Gastroenterology with acute medical and stroke on-calls for one year. Now, with a DPhil scholarship, I am continuing my research in endometriosis in Oxford under the supervision of Professor Christian Becker and Dr Thomas Tapmeier. Post DPhil, I am hoping to pursue a career in Obstetrics & Gynaecology with the possibility of subspecialising in either Obstetrics Medicine or Reproductive Medicine.
