Biography

I am a Clinical Associate Professor in Veterinary Anaesthesia and Analgesia. I qualified as a Veterinary Surgeon in 1995 from The University of Liverpool, and then worked in mixed, small animal and emergency practice across the North West of England. At about this time I realised that the truly 'sexy' veterinary subject is anaesthesia so I gained my RCVS certificate in veterinary anaesthesia while working in practice. I subsequently joined UCD, Dublin as a lecturer where I gained my European Diploma in Veterinary Anaesthesia and Analgesia in 2008 before moving to the University of Edinburgh Vet School for four years and then spent some time at the RVC, London as Head of Veterinary Anaesthesia. I joined Nottingham Vet School in 2014.

Expertise Summary

Past Research

I have published in the area of sedation in small animals and have been involved in projects examining the effect of chest morphology on respiratory variables.

Future Research

My interests lie in the development of anaesthesia simulation and its validation for the teaching of undergraduate and postgraduate students.

I am also interested in pain and its control in the peri-operative and home situation in domestic animals
