Quentin is an anatomist with broad range of experiences and areas of expertise that all feed into developing anatomical understanding in everyone from school students through to experienced clinicians. He has more than 15 very full years of experience teaching anatomy. He completed his BSc(Hons) in Anatomy and PhD (clinical anatomy of the wrist) at the University of Adelaide.  Demonstrating in labs and running commercial classes, along with learning mortuary techniques and management featured heavily during his time at Adelaide. He also gained further experience teaching at the SA College of Natural Medicine and at the University of South Australia. These experiences led him to a lectureship at Flinders University. He then took up a teaching position at the American University of the Caribbean, where he revitalised the anatomy programme.  

In late 2007 he was appointed the William Hunter Lecturer in Anatomy at the University of Glasgow and was later promoted to Senior Lecturer. In Glasgow he led the refurbishment of the anatomy facilities, revitalised their management, led the expansion of the Body Donor Programme, and was heavily involved in the rewriting of the anatomy component of the new medical curriculum. He also had a leading role in the establishment of a world-class training facility, the Clinical Anatomy Skills Centre (CASC), in association with the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow.  He helped CASC become one of the premier training facilities in Europe, and was involved in the design and delivery of many of the courses offered.

Quentin's research has included numerous collaborations with clinicians, particularly in orthopaedics and plastic surgery. He is also well known for his work in donor preparation and management. He has published more than 30 papers and presented at a wide variety of anatomical and surgical conferences internationally.  In 2013 his work in clinical anatomy was recognised by election to Fellowship of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow. Quentin was featured in the two-part documentary series "Dissected" on BBC4 in 2014, along with a programme about Leonardo Da Vinci (BBC2, 2013) and anotherabout the Hunter brothers (BBC4, 2014).
