I graduated from the Royal Veterinary College in 2012. Following this, I worked in practice for a short period at the People's Dispensary for Sick Animals (PDSA) in London. During this time, I published my undergraduate research project on variant anatomy and pathology of rhinoceros foot bones, and enjoyed research so much that I returned to the RVC's Structure and Motion Laboratory to undertake a PhD. Here, I studied the comparative anatomy, evolution and biomechanical function of sesamoid bones, focusing on the patella. I then moved overseas in 2018 for my post-doc, to Harvard's Museum of Comparative Zoology, to work on modelling forelimb function in the context of mammalian evolution. In 2019, I joined the team at Surrey's School of Veterinary Medicine as a Teaching Fellow in Veterinary Anatomy.
I am particularly interested in how form and function influence one another, both in evolutionary contexts and in understanding anatomical variation.
