I joined the University in 2013 after working clinically for 13 years as a physiotherapist. I have worked predominantly in the NHS with patients with musculoskeletal disorders, but have also worked in private practice, overseas and in industrial and occupational health settings. My other main area of academic interest is acupuncture, which I teach at a post-graduate level to practising physiotherapists.
