Research

Currently I am a Professional Practice Fellow for the Department of Anatomy teaching a wide range of courses from Health Sciences First Year, 200-level and 300-level Anatomy, as well as topics in Physiotherapy and other professional courses.

I am passionate about using teaching strategies that excite and inspire students that are studying Anatomical Sciences, and evaluate these where possible for research purposes.

I am also interested in the the early developmental interactions between muscle precursors and the nervous system, as well as other developmental processes.
