Lecturer in Anatomy, Bangor University

I am an anatomist with a keen interest in evolution and neuroanatomy.
Previously I was an acupuncturist for over 20 years. With my anatomical training I have done extensive anatomical studies exploring the possibility that the acupuncture points are not esoteric structures, but form the basis for an early anatomical atlas. This is an ongoing project.
I also work very closely with my colleague Izzy Winder on the anatomy of primate and human evolutionary biology.
