Overview

Research Interests

  • Exploring the process of learning psycho motor skills in surgical training
    To optimise the process of teaching surgical procedures , it is essential to understand the learning process of psych-motor skills. The interaction between different congnitive elements and deliberate practice is important for the transition from cognitive phase to integrative phase and finally to automation. I am interested in exploring factors which affect transition to integration phase by optimising attention, perception and concept formation.
  • Minimising risk of urinary tract injury in gynaecological surgery
