I also co-ordinate 3 post graduate veterinary modules in sheep medicine as part of the Certificate in Advanced Veterinary Practice courses here at Liverpool and supervise research projects in the post-graduate Diploma of Bovine Reproduction Course for vets.
I have held many interesting administrative roles in the Veterinary School, currently I have a strong interest in research ethics and I am Co-Chair of the Institute Research Ethics Committee and also sit on Central University Ethics Committee.
