I am professor of applied physiology at Bristol university with an interest in the physiology and pathophysiology of the urinary tract.
I also undertake research in cardiology and applied cardiovascular sciences
I graduated with a BSc in Biological sciences and PhD in Biophysics and subsequently all attained a degree in Mathematics.
I received a DSc in Physiology from University College London in 1993 and was made a Fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons at Edinburgh in 2013 for services to surgical training in research
I have a life long interest in teaching and training science and medical trainees and professionals in the fundamental principles for sciences underpinning physiology, pharmacology and medical disciplines
