His interests in veterinary anesthesia are diverse, encompassing everything from wildlife and zoo animal anesthesia through to the equipment used to maintain and monitor anesthesia; and from the management of perioperative pain to the issues surrounding chronic pain and palliative care. His wider interests in veterinary medicine include the role of veterinary medicine in society, the science of clinical decision-making and medical errors.
