Consultant Clinical Oncologist at UCH (since 2005) working and teaching within exceptional multidisciplinary teams of dedicated professionals in head and neck cancer.

Trained at The Royal Marsden and UCH. Her UCL research led to translational research for radiation dose escalation aiming to achieve higher cancer cure rates.

She specialises in Proton Beam and Intensity Modulated Radiotherapy and systemic chemotherapy, immunotherapy and molecular targeted treatments. Proton Beam Therapy can be of value for younger patients or where the tumour is close to radiosensitive tissues. She has a particular interest in sinus tumours, including rare olfactory neuroblastoma and skull base tumours, where tailored surgery and proton beam therapy can deliver effective cure with reduced late effects.
