I qualified as a Physiotherapist from Kings College London in 2003. I worked for the NHS  for 10 years in a wide range of specialties. I specialised in cardiovascular and respiratory physiotherapy, working in a range of setting such as critical care, community, medicine and surgery. My first teaching post was at Keele University as a part time sessional lecturer and then I joined the University of Worcester in a full time post in 2014.

Educational: I am very interested in the use of simulation as an educational tool and investigating students perspectives and opinions in its use.
