He also served on a number organisational committees aimed at increasing physician and engineering collaboration.
During his PhD studies, Dr. Cox lectured on numerous medical and biomedical engineering subjects from the undergraduate to post-graduate level. He supervised student research projects and continually promoted interdisciplinary cooperation amongst his medical and engineering students. It was during these activities that Dr. Cox developed a passion for teaching. He also participated in a number of public engagement events involving topics in healthcare research. This activity culminated with an endoscopy demonstration to HRH Princess Anne at the Dundee Science Centre.
