Research Interests

Teaching Interests:

During the final year course I provide practical training to students during their anaesthesia rotation, as well as small group discussions based on clinical cases that we see and around clinically relevant  topics. It is our job during the rotation to make sure that the final years leave Cambridge ready for their first day in practice – anaesthesia is a day one skill after all.

I am also involved in the didactic teaching of anaesthesia in the earlier years of the veterinary course. During 2014-15 I was responsible for the Control of Pain in the 4th year course and Farm Animal Anaesthesia (and analgesia) in the 5th year course.
