Role: Stipendiary college lecturer in medicine; Consultant anaesthetist


Dr Birte Feix


My academic life began as a mathematician, and I completed my Diplom in Heidelberg and Part III of the Mathematical Tripos in Cambridge in the 1990s. A PhD in pure mathematics was followed by a junior research fellowship at Trinity Hall, Cambridge, from which I resigned in 2002 to study Medicine. I undertook post-graduate medical training in anaesthesia and intensive care Medicine in Cambridge and East Anglia and developed a particular interest in neuroanaesthesia. More recently, I also taught physiology to medical undergraduates at Trinity Hall.

I moved to Oxford as a consultant in neuroanaesthesia and critical care in February 2016.
