    Personal profile

    Research interests

    Sam moved to Oxford in 2016 where he completed his undergraduate degree in Medical Science at Oxford Brookes University. During his degree, Sam's research project involved working with The University of Oxford on the TEPHRA study to investigate the relationship between blood pressure and cardiac anatomy in adults born prematurely.
    Sam then transitioned directly into a PhD using echocardiography, physical activity and cardiorespiratory fitness tests, and other techniques to understand early risk factors for cardiac dysfunction in adolescents with obesity. This research was part of the OxSOCRATES randomised control trial at The University of Oxford and Oxford Brookes University.
    In the final year of his PhD, Sam accepted a position as a post-doctoral research associate at King's College London to work with Dr Paul Taylor and colleagues in the Department of Women & Children's Health on the follow-up study of 700 children from mother who participated in the UPBEAT trial, where he will be responsible for collecting and analysing the study data. This study aims to understand whether a lifestyle programme in pregnant women with obesity can result in a healthier cardiovascular phenotype in the 10 year-old child offspring.
    Sam's research interests include paediatric echocardiography and the prevention of cardiovascular disease.
