About

I graduated as a bachelor of biology in 1999. Following this I studied veterinary medicine and graduated as doctor in veterinary medicine in 2004 from Liege University (ULg, Belgium). During this period I developed a particular interest in functional anatomy, especially for the locomotor apparatus.

From 2001 to 2004 I developed a multimedia tool on Equine Anatomy in the anatomy division of Professor Bernard Collin. This project was awarded in 2004 by two prices (Prince Laurent Foundation and Equine Research and Welfare Foundation).

In 2004 I worked at the Ulg as research and teaching assistant and started a PhD on the equine biomechanics supervised by Professors Didier Serteyn, Bernard Collin (Veterinary faculty, Ulg), Adrien Magnee (Applied Sciences Faculty, Ulg) and Jean-Marie Denoix (CIRALE-Alfort, France).  Two research axes have been developed: one addressing the study of dynamic pressure constraints (articular contact force) affecting horses’ digital extremities, and the other addressing the study of frictional viscous dynamic constraints of the cartilage-synovial fluid-cartilage relationship. My PhD, entitled “study of equine articular biomechanics by tribometry and inverse dynamic analysis” was awarded in 2010.

 In 2010-2011 I worked as demonstrator in the Anatomy division of the Department of Veterinary Basic Sciences at the Royal Veterinary College (RVC) of London supervised by Professors Nigel Goode and Neil Stickland.

I joined James Cook University in 2012 to establish and run the Comparative Anatomy in both Veterinary and Biomedical Sciences. I teach: comparative gross anatomy (locomotor apparatus, nervous apparatus, circulatory apparatus, digestive apparatus, urogenital apparatus, respiratory apparatus, integumental apparatus, endocrine system), topographical anatomy (clinical anatomy of the horse, ox and dog), embryology and biomedical histology. My current research interests are closely linked to the teaching activity: development of new blended teaching resources; comparison of traditional integrated teaching and the addition of some digital medias in undergraduate veterinary anatomy.
