Professional Qualifications

1996Member of the Royal College of Physicians, Edinburgh, MRCP (UK)
Fellow of the College of Emergency Medicine, FCEM


I trained in Emergency Medicine in Edinburgh having completed undergraduate degrees in Medicine, Psychology and become MRCP. I was inspired to pursue an academic career largely by the example of Prof. Colin Robertson and started research work early in the course of my EM training - initially looking at whether advanced signal analysis techniques could be used to guide the resuscitation of patients in ventricular fibrillation. Later I took time out my training programme to be a Wellcome Clinical Research Fellow and completed a PhD in cell biology looking at the process of lung epithelial repair after acute lung injury. In 2005 I started as a CSO Intermediate Fellow at the Centre for Inflammation Research in the Queen’s Medical Research Institute at Edinburgh University, and an honorary Consultant in EM at the Royal Infirmary in Edinburgh. In 2010 I became a Clinical Senior Lecturer at the University of Edinburgh.
