  • Expert knowledge of human anatomy, to permit production of high-quality teaching prosections and instruction of medical and biomedical science students.
  • Acting as part of the Departmental teaching team as an anatomy / neuroanatomy / histology demonstrator in the practical teaching laboratories and providing lectures and seminars for the instruction of undergraduate and graduate medical students and undergraduate biomedical sciences students on some Divisional courses. This includes producing lecture notes, course materials and reading lists.

I have a unique role that combines elements of both a teaching and anatomy laboratory technical role.

I arrived at Oxford in 2019 after completing a masters in Human Anatomy with Education at the University of Sheffield and am now studying for a masters in Medical Education.
