Sarah has recently been appointed as an Associate Professor of Dermatology at the University of Southampton and a Consultant at University Hospital Southampton. She completed her training in General Medicine at Severn deanery and after gaining her MRCP she moved to Southampton to start a training post in Dermatology. Whilst in Southampton she was introduced to the work done at the MRC Lifecourse Epidemiology Centre and undertook a post graduate Doctor of Medicine higher degree at the University of Southampton examining developmental origins of atopic eczema. She then secured an NIHR Clinical Lecturer post allowing her to complete her clinical training in Dermatology alongside continuing her research. Sarah has published widely in the fields of dermatology, allergy and epidemiology in world leading journals, she has been invited to present and national and internationally meetings and has won a number of awards for her published work. Her work into early life influences on atopic eczema has also received interest from a number of media outlets and she has featured in a number of magazine articles. Sarah continues to pursue research into atopic eczema with an ultimate goal of identifying preventive strategies whilst developing a specialist interest in paediatric dermatology that aligns well with her research.
