I'm an Academic & Clinical Lecturer with the Diagnostic Radiography team at Cardiff University, leading on Learning Technology and Simulation. I'm also studying a PhD at the School of Healthcare Sciences.

My clinical role with Cardiff University is in partnership with Swansea Bay University Health Board & NHS Wales, providing clinical education to radiographers within the Swansea region.

My academic teaching covers a variety of topics within the undergraduate and postgraduate Radiography courses at the School of Healthcare Science.

I'm a HCPC accredited Diagnostic Radiographer, Society of Radiographers Member, and member of the Association of Radiography Educators.






I'm studying a PhD at the School of Healthcare Sciences, investigating the effects of working practice on Diagnostic Radiographers.

I'm interested in researching Radiographer and AHP resilience, shift work & error, and workforce optimisation. This includes a wider study of the Diagnostic Radiographer - from the perspective of other healthcare professionals, patients and the general public.

I'm also passionate about Learning Technology in Diagnostic Radiography; Nuclear Medicine.

  • Cardiovascular Imaging,
  • Nuclear Medicine,
  • Quality Assurance,
  • Informatics and Learning Technology,
  • Professional Practice.

Former Radiographer & Senior Radiographer in NHS Wales 2005-2016 - rotating through general radiography, fluoroscopy, theatre, mobiles, cardiology/interventional & Nuclear Medicine (particularly Nuclear Cardiology).

A clinical mentor's role within my Local Health Board (and subsequent Practice Education accreditation with the Society and College of Radiographers) led to a Clinical Tutor secondment with Cardiff University in Spring 2015, overseeing clinical education in what is now Swansea Bay University Health Board. A full time dual role (Academic & Clinical Lecturer) with Cardiff University began in Autumn 2016, leading to completion of MSc(D) in Radiography at Cardiff. I also successfully completed work to register a Fellowship of the Higher Education Academy. I commenced my PhD research with the School of Healthcare Sciences in January 2022.

I am involved in technology and simulation in Diagnostic Radiography, including implementation of Shaderware (simulation software) and MyProgress (clinical portfolio). I teach on a variety of modules within both undergraduate and postgraduate programmes.
