I gained my Batchelor's degree in Zoology at the Univeristy of Nottingham in 1979. I then moved to the University of Glasgow to study for my Ph.D under the supervision of Derek Wakelin at the Wellcome Laboratories for Experimental Parasitology. Following graduation I moved with Derek to the MRC Experimental Parasitology Group, Dept of Zoology,University of Nottingham in 1982 where I undertook postdoctoral research until 1987.
