I qualified from Calcutta National Medical College, India (Calcutta University) in 2004 and then moved to the UK. I completed my postgraduate medical training in the Yorkshire Deanery. My specialist training in cardiology was undertaken in the Severn Deanery. After core cardiology training, I undertook a period of out of programme research studying the novel diagnostic role of cardiac magnetic resonance in acute coronary syndrome, culminating in the award of a PhD from University of Bristol (March 2020). I have got >100 publications in high impact journals and won multiple international and national young investigator awards. My sub-specialist cardiology training in coronary intervention was undertaken in the South West. I was appointed as Consultant Cardiologist at the North Bristol NHS Trust and Bristol Heart Institute in May 2020.
I am an associate editor for European Heart Journal – Case Reports, and reviewer for various cardiology journals. I am actively involved in research and an investigator for various research studies.
I have an active interest in teaching. I have supervised >15 University of Bristol medical students in their eSSC projects. I am regularly invited to teach and lecture at various international, national and local meetings/conferences (European Society of Cardiology Congress, EuroPCR, British Cardiovascular Society Conference, Advanced Cardiac Intervention meeting, EuroCMR, SCMR etc). I am currently a mentor for the national cardiology mentorship programme.
My specialist interests include complex coronary intervention, management of coronary artery disease, myocardial infarction with non-obstructed coronary artery (MINOCA), out of hospital cardiac arrest, cardiomyopathy and research into the causes and treatment of acute coronary syndromes (heart attacks), heart failure and MINOCA.
I am fully trained in all aspects of general cardiology, coronary intervention, intravascular imaging, cardiac magnetic resonance imaging(ESC level 3 accreditation), heart failure and hypertension. I am part of the regional (tertiary) 24/7 heart attack service (primary PCI) at Bristol Heart Institute.
