I made this up so my kids could keep track of where I was at all these conferences.
Also a really cool example of just how awesome (and easy) d3.js can be.
I commenced neurosurgery training in Cambridge in 2009. Subsequently I have taken 3 years out of the
standard 8 year training programme for a PhD, resulting in an expected completion date of 2020.
During my time in Cambridge I have taken an active role in teaching, rota management, audit, and (of
course) clinical neurosurgery. Here are some links to my training in Cambridge:
I am also interested in training, learning, and case progression. Here I've tried to show how one can
explore their surgical logbook to look for trends and development in their operative experience. Note:
data is randomised and not real patient data. However, I made a simple matlab script to generate the
above from ones own elogbook data (just contact me if you want it).
Many thanks to Mike Bostocks
D3.js and Ian YF Chang's 'heatmap'
for inspiring this work.
I began a PhD on Functional brain mapping and connectome analysis in neurosurgery in February 2014 under
the supervision of Professor John Suckling (Director of Research, Department of Psychiatry,
University of Cambridge).
Here's a recent review paper of mine on introducing the connectome to neurosurgery:
I was appointed as joint inaugural Cochrane neuro-oncology co-ordinating editor in 2012.
Following and prior to this I have been an enthusiast of evidence based medicine and advocate for
better scientific practice underlying clinical care. Currently we are expanding the Cochrane remit to
not just include reviews of randomized trials but also more broadly synthesizing evidence, including
diagnostic test accuracy, prognostic factors, and treatment network analyses.
