Dominic graduated from The Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine with a Master’s Degree in Molecular Parasitology and Vector Biology and went on to work in a molecular and parasitology laboratory at the University of Exeter as a PhD student. His work here led to the publication of the first ever obligate intranuclear eukaryotic parasite genome. Collaborations following his PhD work led to the development of diagnostic tools for parasite detection in crustaceans.
Following this, Dominic has taught on Foundation Biology, Human Biology and Chemistry modules at INTO University of Exeter. As an Associate Lecturer, Dominic currently facilitates small group learning sessions across the BSc Medical Science and Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery (BMBS) programmes in the Medical school and is actively involved in the continuous development of INTO Foundation Science modules.
As well as his involvement in teaching, Dominic manages a team of technicians and is responsible for co-ordinating the technical aspects of the Life Science Resource Centre programme which is a key element of the BMBS curriculum.
