Ravi is a Lecturer in General Surgery in the Academic Department of Surgery. He qualified from the University of Birmingham and undertook his residency in general and vascular surgery in Leeds and York. Following completion of his Doctoral studies in Molecular and Cellular Biology at the University of Leeds, he continued specialist training in general and upper GI cancer surgery in Yorkshire.
His major research interests are based around improving survival from cancer through earlier detection, curative surgery, reduction of complications and education.
Ravi is the co-founder of several companies and is currently the CEO of Schoolofsurgery.org - a surgical news channel delivering continued surgical education around the globe.
