Geoff lectured in anatomy and neurology for 21 years before going into private practice in 1993. He is a founding Diplomat of the European College of Veterinary Neurology and a past president of this organisation. He also served on the RCVS Council for twelve years.

Geoff's most recent publication with Ian Elliott, the 'Handbook of Small Animal MRI' has been very popular and is now on the recommended reading list of the European College of Veterniary Diagnostic Imaging.

Geoff has particular interests in neurosurgery, epilepsy, spinal surgery and spinal disease, Chiari-like malformations and MR Imaging
