Professional Career

Senior Fellow, Radiology Department, The University of Melbourne, teaching radiology trainees, medical students and postgraduate physiotherapy students.
Research activities in the area of MRI in arthritis, cartilage and Gaucher disease.

Interests in the science faith area

My Christian faith was challenged, particularly by aspects of biological science, during my medical training and at work, so that being able to listen to and encourage those
working in this area has been important.
