RESUME 

 about me 

A general medicine doctor by background, I am an experienced clinical lead, consultant and director in the healthcare and technology industries, working at the intersection of clinical, commercial and technology fields. I have expertise in leading the design, implementation and commercialisation of digital health solutions, and supporting healthcare organisations with service and digital transformation. I hold a particular interest in the application of artificial intelligence and machine learning in healthcare. I have built, led and managed global cross-functional teams and worked in the UK NHS and across international healthcare systems for global healthcare and technology organisations.

In my current role as an Associate Partner for Healthcare at IBM, I am responsible for working with healthcare clients to tackle complex problems and transform care delivery leveraging IBM's technology capabilities in AI, Analytics, Hybrid-Cloud and Blockchain, and consulting services expertise. As a member of the Global Chief Health Officer's Team, I also provide clinical and strategic support for healthcare initiatives across IBM, globally.

 

I am the Co-Founder and Managing Director of Doctorpreneurs, a non-profit organisation and global community for healthcare professionals and students passionate about tackling important problems in healthcare through​ technology, innovation and entrepreneurship. I provide independent digital health advisory services to startups, corporates, investors and accelerators. I am also a Fellow at the UK Faculty of Clinical Informatics.

Prior to joining IBM, I have been a practising medical doctor and have held roles as the Clinical Lead for Digital Health at Bupa, an international healthcare insurance and provider organisation, and as a Clinical Fellow to the NHS National Medical Director.

Throughout my career I have been a coach and mentor supporting individuals from diverse backgrounds with personal and professional development. Click here for more about coaching services.
