Lecturer in Veterinary Anatomic Pathology


Liam received his veterinary undergraduate degree (BVM&S) from the University of Edinburgh in 2016, which was followed by three years working in first-opinion small animal practice across England.  He also undertook an MSc in Translation Neuropathology in 2018, at the The Sheffield Institute for Translation Neuroscience (SITRAN), University of Sheffield, alongside continued locum small animal practice. Liam completed his anatomic pathology residency at the University of Edinburgh in 2023, during which time he took an ever increasing role in conservation pathology, particularly focussing on the mortality monitoring of Scotland's red squirrels. This has since become a large part of his working life, including multiple publications, presentations at multiple national and international conferences and invitations to national level conservation strategy meetings.
