I am a consultant in General and Emergency Surgery at Whittington Hospital NHS Trust in North London. My training background is Hepato-Biliary and Pancreatic surgery (HPB) and my surgical practice covers diagnosis and treatment of dyspepsia symptoms, gallstone disease, biliary pathology, and hernia surgery at Circle Reading.

I completed my surgical training in Athens, Greece, followed by a UK Specialist Fellowship in HPB surgery at Hammersmith Hospital in London. I was then awarded a Marie-Curie European Scholarship for higher training and research in HPB surgery. My Ph.D. thesis was on complex upper gastrointestinal surgeries and complication management.

I publish actively on this subject to date.

I am currently the lead for Get It Right First Time (GIRFT) for North and Central London and a core member of the Pan-London Regional Clinical Reference Group for elective post-Covid Recovery of General Surgery. I am a member of the faculty of the Royal College of Surgeons Intermediate Laparoscopic Skills Course and of the Basic Surgical Skills Course.  I am clinical faculty for UCL medical students, and I teach simulation and hands-on courses to junior and middle-grade surgical trainees. I have published my research work extensively in peer-reviewed journals and I had presentations and invited talks in National and International meetings.

Outside work, I am an avid literature reader and a novice bonsai enthusiast. I am also a big fan of football which I follow on national and international levels.
