I was elected the Member of Parliament for East Surrey in 2019. Growing up, I watched my parents work as GPs in the NHS, listening to people's problems and solving them as best they could. It is in that spirit that I hope to serve the people of East Surrey.
I graduated from Oxford University with a degree in Maths and Philosophy. At the beginning of my career, I worked in emerging markets in the City. After a few years, I decided to leave that job to work in social justice policy. I covered a range of issues, from education to financial inclusion to the regeneration of Britain’s most deprived communities. After five years, I became a Special Adviser to then-Chief Secretary to the Treasury Rishi Sunak. As an MP, I am now working as a Parliamentary Private Secretary to HM Treasury.
My local priorities include fixing our roads, supporting the local economy, and protecting our environment. In June 2020, I set up the East of Surrey Local Economic Taskforce with neighbouring MP Crispin Blunt to bring decision-makers across Surrey together to drive our economic strategy. I am also the only sitting MP on the Surrey Growth Board. In Westminster, I am on the Advisory Board of the think tank Onward, and I am a member of Policy Exchange’s Indo-Pacific Commission.
