I will complete my neurosurgical training in 2019, and plan to undertake a fellowship in skull base surgery. I have an interest in neuro-oncology, and I would like to focus in this area. With a background in basic science research, particularly focused on brain tumours, I would like to be involved in research as a part of my career as a neurosurgeon.
