About Me

My professional clinical background is as a nurse and I specialised in acute medicine and neurosurgery prior to working in Higher Education. My current role as the Director of Studies for Pre-qualifying Studies requires me to have a sound awareness of professional requirements, and to guide developments in provision, of the sixteen pre-qualifying programmes that the College provides. I am also an associate dean of the Academic Board (undergraduate students).This role requires my involvement with pan-university demands and strategic developments, with my particular portfolio including admissions and professional programmes.

My research interests relate to emergency medicine and the student experience. My teaching interests relate in particular to clinical decision making and acute medicine.
