Biography

Mandy Roshier gained a BSc (Hons) in Equine Science from the University of Bristol before completing a PhD in biomedical engineering at the University of Nottingham, Institute of Biomechanics. This PhD investigated the use of diagnostic ultrasound as a method to diagnose soft tissue injuries of the neck following a whiplash injury. During this period of study, Mandy also demonstrated human anatomy to medical students. An interest in the public engagement of science throughout this period led to presenting her research to Parliament, schools and national science fairs. More recently she was called as an expert witness for the Transport Select Committee's consultation on whiplash in May 2013. Following her PhD and while based in the University's Institute of Biomechanics, Mandy pursued her interest in science communication and secured funding from the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council; this resulted in a science theme day package for primary schools called Awesome Athletes. She joined the School of Veterinary Medicine and Science in March 2006.

Expertise Summary

Mandy Roshier is a Lecturer in Anatomy and Behaviour. She has responsibilities for the administration and delivery of teaching for veterinary students within the School on both the five and six year course. Her focus is primarily on the musculoskeletal and behaviour modules. She is also a facilitator of case based learning in small group teaching sessions. Mandy has extensive experience of learning technologies including video production, interactive white boards and computer voting systems and assists with their integration throughout the course. Continuing her interest in human anatomy, she has developed a facility to provide a comparative anatomy resource. She is actively involved in science communication and public engagement initiatives; working with external organisations as well as organising widening participation events. She represents the School on the University Environment Committee, and the School's Learning Community Forum. Mandy is a member of The Anatomical Society, an academic member of The Association of Pet Behaviour Counsellors, and a committee member of the British Veterinary Behaviour Association.

Research Summary

Mandy Roshier's teaching and research interests include science communication and the public engagement of science, applied animal behaviour in the veterinary practice and veterinary education.
