I am a clinical lecturer in cardiovascular medicine.
Favourite thing to do in my job: Drink coffee and interact with lots of people! - A brainstorming event!
About Me: Dad, doctor, scientist who loves to work and play hard!
I am using this section to demonstrate what my work involves:
Blood flow in the heart
The heart squeezes the blood into the whole body. At rest, the heart pumps 5 litres of blood per minute. However, at peak exercise, it can pump up to 20 litres of blood per minute!
My Work: I am a doctor and scientist. My work involves saving lives and developing new technology to assess blood flow in the heart.
My Typical Day: A lot of writing, scanning patients in a magnet, analysing data and talking to other researchers.
What I'd do with the prize money: I will develop a video to explain how the blood travels in the heart!
