As a qualified Physician & Gastroenterologist, I have trained in university teaching hospitals, including, St. James’s Hospital, St, Vincent's Hospital, and Adelaide & Meath Hospital. I achieved distinctions including presentation of scientific papers at national and international forums and published my work in high-impact, peer-reviewed gastroenterology journals. I gained formal accreditation in endoscopic procedures with extensive experience in upper and lower gastrointestinal diagnostic and therapeutic procedures.

Principle areas of my interest as a national and international expert include:

  • Management of inflammatory bowel disease, diarrhoeal conditions, IBS and Coeliac disease
  • Management of Helicobacter pylori infection including peptic ulcer disease, reflux and dyspepsia
  • Management of viral hepatitis and complicated liver conditions including cirrhosis
  • Colorectal cancer screening and removal of precancerous polyps
I have acted as a scientific advisor for the European Collaborative Group on Inflammatory Bowel Disease (EC-IBD) and as a lead clinician played a key role in the Colorectal Cancer Screening Programme being conducted at the Adelaide and Meath Hospital, Tallaght, Dublin.
