Background

I have been working as a Consultant in Anaesthesia and Intensive Care at the Hutt Valley DHB, New Zealand since 2015. I completed my undergraduate degree (MBBS) from Rajiv Gandhi University, India, following which I moved to the United Kingdom to undergo my postgraduate training. I have dual training in Anaesthesia and Intensive Care, and most of my training years were in the London, Kent, Surrey and Sussex regions. I am a Fellow of the Royal College of Anaesthetists UK, Faculty of Intensive Care UK and also Fellow of the Australia and New Zealand College of Anaesthesia.

Medical education and clinical research has always been my passion since early years. I have been an Education Supervisor at Hutt Hospital since 2016 and I have been heavily involved in the education and training needs of the junior doctors in the Wellington region. I am also a College Scholar role tutor in the anaesthetic department at Hutt Hospital. Safe clinical practice, early intervention and treatment are key principles imbedded into my practice and these are my areas of research and teaching.
