She was the Professor of Pathology and the Dean of Medical Sciences at the International Medical University in Kuala Lumpur. She has published several highly cited articles within skin and bone pathology.

Career[edit]

She studied medicine in Ireland and pursued postgraduate studies in London, obtaining FRCPath and a PhD from the University of London. She was Senior Lecturer and Reader in histopathology at St George's, University of London for 26 years until 2014, and also served as associate dean of St George's.
