He graduated, with honours, from the UCD School of Medicine (Ireland) in 2011, before completing his basic physician training in Royal Perth Hospital, Australia. He then went on to complete a two year Cardiology research MD fellowship at the University of Western Australia on the role of inflammation in coronary artery disease culminating in several high impact publications and achieving the prestigious Irish Cardiac Society Brian Maurer Young Investigator award.
