I have a background in Clinical Physiology specialising in respiratory and sleep physiology. I’ve worked in various NHS services in England and Wales since 1997, and maintain an honorary clinical contract at Singleton Hospital.

I’ve been involved with clinical supervision and teaching at Swansea University for over ten years and took the fantastic opportunity to join the team full-time as Senior Lecturer in 2017.

I’m currently working on research projects looking at sleep in pregnancy, and with projects running via Swansea University Respiratory Network.

I’m Chair of ARTP Wales, the regional professional network for respiratory and sleep physiologists. I’m passionate about promoting the role of Respiratory and Sleep Physiology in the NHS to the public, clinicians, and policy makers.
