Research overview

My research interests lie within the field of osteoarthritis and the degeneration and turnover of cartilage and bone. My work commenced on a rare form of osteoarthritis; alkaptonuria, which is still studied in my lab. My work on this condition has lead me to also focus on arthritis and the turnover of joint tissues in response to disease(s) due to discoveries made whilst studying alkaptonuria. 

I also have research interests allied to my delivery of anatomy teaching. I am interested in anatomy teaching and its delivery as part of modern medical and allied health curricula.

My most recent research is in public engagement in anatomy and the use of of public knowledge of anatomy in teaching and healthcare.
