Area of academic expertise - outline

Prior to joining UWS in 2014, I had spent the previous 20 years at the University of Glasgow, where I was involved in a number of research studies and clinical trials, within Neurosurgery and Oncology, focusing on improving patient outcomes following injury and serious illness.

Desired research direction

I aim to build on my experience thus far, in research focused on improving outcomes following serious illness.
