I was born on the Gold Coast (actually in Pindara Hospital), and educated at The Southport School, graduating from the University of Queensland Medical School in 1996. I received my surgical fellowship in 2004 having completed my training in Queensland, and then undertook post-fellowship training in 2005/6 in Sydney, London, and Adelaide in the areas of otology, neurotology, skullbase surgery, and advanced sinus surgery.
In terms of research, I have almost completed a PhD through Griffith University on Olfactory Ensheathing Cells and Stem Cells in Nerve Repair and Regeneration. This work has involved developing alternative methods of peripheral nerve repair, and this technology has also led to applications in neurological disease and the human spinal cord injury trial at Princess Alexandra Hospital.
Whilst having had broad training in all areas of my specialty, I have special interests in:
- Otology (including bone anchored hearing aids and cochlear implantation)
- Neurotology (especially facial nerve disorders)
- Skullbase surgery (such as acoustic neuromas and glomus tumours)
- Advanced sinus surgery (and its extension to the orbit and skullbase)
- Head and neck surgery (especially salivary gland and sinonasal tumours)
I have written numerous articles and chapters on basic science and clinical research, and presented both nationally and internationally.
