I am a final year medical student at King’s College London.
I am Undergraduate Director of the British Society of Lifestyle Medicine. Through this role I am coordinating the activities of the Undergraduate Lifestyle Medicine Society. Our aim is to promote ‘LM’ to the undergraduate communities in the UK by facilitating educational and career building opportunities.

I try to exercise often, eat the best diet I can, be mindful of stress, and sleep well. I am keen to learn more about how lifestyle interventions can be used to advance athletic performance, or to prevent disease and increase quality of life in wider populations. My current interests are in mitochondrial function, nutritional ketosis, and the health benefits of resistance training.
I enjoy reading blogs, largely focusing on nutrition, exercise science, “biohacks” and functional medicine. In addition, I learn a lot by attending events from nutrition to surgery at my university and when I can afford them, conferences. Check out the events I’ve been to here: Academic Events and Interests
A recent concept I have adopted is the ‘growth’ mindset. I want to hear your feedback and I want to improve. I also look forward to building new relationships, developing opportunities and continually learning.
