I am a Lecturer in Veterinary Anatomy. I am a comparative anatomist by training, having completed a BSc in Equine Science (now Comparative Veterinary Anatomy) at the University of Bristol (2004). I gained a PhD in Locomotor Anatomy and Biomechanics from the RVC in the Structure and Motion Laboratory (2007). My thesis focused on the locomotor anatomy and performance of animals with exceptional sprinting abilities - the hare and racing greyhound. I currently continue with anatomical and biomechanical research alongside my teaching commitments, and carrying out educational research projects.
