I am a Medical Physicist by profession, and I am registered with the Health Professions Council in the UK. My career began in 1984 with the Department of Clinical Physics and Bioengineering in Glasgow, eventually leading to appointment as Senior Physicist, providing scientific support to the Department of Cardiac Surgery in Glasgow Royal Infirmary. I joined the University of Sheffield in 1996 and have been involved with a breadth of Medical Physics teaching/research related to radiation, simulation and validation. I have been a major technical contributor to numerous EU projects and most recently I have been leading the VPH-CaSE Marie Curie network with my colleague Dr A Narracott. I have been a major technical contributor to numerous EU projects and most recently. My primary interests have led to publications in medical radiation physics, aspects of diagnostic imaging and the VPH.
