Introduction

About me: I am a Reader in Paediatric Musculoskeletal Imaging in the Department of Oncology and Metabolism, University of Sheffield and a Consultant Paediatric Radiologist at Sheffield Children’s Hospital. My research interests include optimising existing and developing novel methods of imaging children’s bones and muscles, specifically in suspected child abuse and diseases with which abuse may be confused.
Sheffield is the perfect place for this as it has a busy Emergency Department at the Children's Hospital, the Mellanby Centre for Bone Research, the largest cohort of children with osteogenesis imperfecta in Europe and the Insigneo Institute. This is just to name a few reasons why the work I do is possible, challenging and exciting. Ultimately, I hope that my research contributes to improving children's lives.
As Vice-Chair of the University of Sheffield's Black, Asian and other Minority Ethnic Staff Network,I'm keenly motivated to influence and promote inclusive cultures and policies within the University of Sheffield and to be a positive role model for BAME students and staff.
