More about me

I was raised in Townsville and attended boarding school in Brisbane, before studying Medicine in Sydney, at the University of New South Wales, where I graduated with First Class Honours in 2004.

I completed my specialist ophthalmic surgical training in Queensland, including a year as Senior Registrar at the Princess Alexandra Hospital, before undertaking further subspecialty fellowship training in medical retina and vitreoretinal surgery at the Oxford Eye Hospital and Bristol Eye Hospital, respectively.

I subsequently pursued additional international retinal training at Vitreous Retina Macula Consultants of New York, and the Edward S. Harkness Eye Institute at Columbia University in New York.

I was awarded the RANZCO Overseas Scholarship to support my subspecialty fellowship training in the UK and North America.

My clinical interests include vitreoretinal and macular surgery, medical retina conditions, and complex cataract surgery that requires vitreoretinal intervention. I also have a special interest in inherited retinal diseases and the evolving therapies within this area, such as retinal gene therapy. Besides my clinical work, I enjoy teaching and training the Vitreoretinal Fellows, Ophthalmology Registrars and medical students, and continue to be involved in ophthalmic research.

In my spare time, I enjoy exploring regional and remote Australia and relaxing at the beach with my family.
