I have over 23 years of clinical experience, mainly within the cardiorespiratory field and in particular within critical care.
I began my career as a lecturer here at the University of Leicester in 2006 where I took on a variety of teaching responsibilities within the BSc (Hons) Physiotherapy course. Over my academic career I have completed my PGCAPP, gained FHEA status and been awarded a Master of Education with distinction. I have taught and led on many different modules within the Physiotherapy BSc (Hons) Undergraduate degree programme.
All of this experience has lead me to become the Head of the Physiotherapy degree course and the FY physiotherapy course.
My interests lie within the following fields:
- Pedagogical based research including simulation and student experience
- Clinical based research within critical care and respiratory care
I am involved in mentoring, peer review and support of staff within the department and the School.
I supervise UG students through the completion of their dissertations.
I teach on the following subjects within the BSc (Hons) Physiotherapy degree programme - Pathophysiology 1 (PH1002), Pathophysiology 2 (PH1006), Introducing Practice 1 (PH1003), Introducing Practice 2 (PH1007), Professional Development 1 (PH1004), Evidence Based Practice 1 (PH1008), Cardiorespiratory Clinical Skills 2 (PH2002), Evidence Based Practice 2 (PH2004), Enhancing Practice - Clinical Skills 3 (PH3001), Evidence Based Practice 3 (PH3003)
I am also involved in Simulation based teaching both within the department and the School, as well as Practice Education with students in the clinical environment.
