Responsibilities

Director of BMedSc (Hons) programme

Areas of expertise

Clinical, surgical and radiologic anatomy

- The employment of modern imaging techniques (ultrasound, MRI and CT-scan) to progress our understanding of the limitations of surgical and clinical anatomy related to medical procedures.

- Utilising modern imaging techniques in combination with macro-dissection, micro-dissection, micro-CT and histological analysis to further our understanding of the limitations of modern imaging techniques.

Paediatric anatomy

- Investigating applied anatomy of the growing human (neonates, infants and adolescents) to discover their unique and clinically relevent differences.

Computational biomechanics (soft tissue and bone)

- The employment of modern imaging techniques, histology and E12 slices to understand the biomechanics of the foot.
