Development of myograph expertise 

1988 St Mary’s Hospital , London, Department of clinical pharmacology and therapeutics, met John Pedersen (DMT founder) and discovered the DMT wire myograph. Used samples of human and rat arterioles in research studies.
1991 Austin hospital, University of Melbourne, Departments of Cardiac Surgery and Medicine. Established a myograph laboratory and commenced studies on arterioles from liver transplant patients and rats, relating to the effects of cyclosporine.
1997 – 2017 RMIT University, Microvascular Biology Group, Department of Anatomy and Physiology. Studies on the myogenic properties of skeletal muscle arterioles using pressure myography. Predominantly rat cremaster muscle arterioles. Also wire myography investigating properties of cerebral, basilar, muscle, mesenteric arteries and aorta from rats and mice.
