MBBS, MD, FRACP, FRCPA
I am a haemato-oncologist with an active role in laboratory haematology. I care for patients with both malignant and non-malignant haematological conditions. But my special interests are with chronic leukaemias, lymphomas and monoclonal gammopathies/myeloma. I am actively involved in many clinical trials and am also a principal investigator for trials in myeloma and lymphoma at the Wellington Blood and Cancer Centre.
I completed my basic and post-graduate medical training in Internal Medicine from South India. After training in haematology through Christian Medical College, Vellore, India, I moved to Melbourne, Australia for my higher studies. I completed my fellowship in medicine and specialist training in haematology through St Vincent’s hospital and the Royal Melbourne Hospital. Before moving to Wellington, I was a clinical research fellow at the Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre, Melbourne with active participation in many clinical trials and publications in malignant haematology especially in the fields of lymphoproliferative disorders and myeloma.
