Regent came to Oxford as an exchange surgical fellow in 2009, having completed a Master in Surgery (Vascular Surgery) at University of Sydney. He subsequently completed DPhil in Cardiovascular Medicine, under the supervision of Prof Keith Channon (RDM Cardiovascular Medicine) and Prof Benedikt Kessler (NDM, Target Discovery Institute). 

Regent's research focuses on integrative assessments of biomarkers for the investigation of cardiovascular pathologies such as atherosclerosis or abdominal aortic aneurysms. Regent is also interested at the various factors which may affect the quality of biological samples collected for clinical research, as these may have direct implications on the study findings.

Prior to his UKRI Future Leaders Fellowship, Regent had received research awards from the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons, including the Lumley Surgical Research Fellowship, Foundation of Surgery Research Scholarship, and the Surgeon Scientist Scholarship. His work is also supported by the Oxford University Medical Sciences Division, Oxford Biomedical Research Centre, British Heart Foundation Oxford Centre of Research Excellence, Academy of Medical Sciences, and Heart Research UK. 

Regent has led several Patient and Public Involvement activities for the OxAAA study, including the OxAAA Aneurysm Awareness Day and the OxAAA International Survey. These work has been generously supported by the Oxford University Vice Chancellor's Public Engagement in Research Seed Award, and Patient Active in Research (PAIR) Thames Valley.

Regent is a clinically active academic surgeon and currently an Honorary consultant vascular surgeon at the Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.
