I myself am a graduate of the University of Portsmouth qualifying in 2005 as a diagnostic radiographer. Prior to my current teaching role I worked at the Queen Alexandra Hospital, Portsmouth.

Since joining SHSSW I have gained a Postgraduate Certificate in Learning and Teaching in Higher Education and completed a MA in Health and Social Care Management at the Henley School of Business.

My current role includes diagnostic radiography course leader and interprofessional education lead for all undergraduate students within the SHSSW.

My main areas of teaching include anatomy, physical principles, radiographic technique, interprofessional skills and undergraduate project supervision.

My key research interest is the transferability of collaborative working from clinical practice to academia. I am currently a part-time PhD student researching collaboration in health and social care: The knowledge, beliefs and attitudes of health and social care students, academics and practitioners
