I am a senior lecturer at the School of Healthcare Sciences, and the Director of Learning and Teaching for Post-Graduate Taught and Continuing Professional Development. Prior to working as an academic, I worked clinically as a practice educator and staff nurse in critical care units in Cardiff.

I have held a number of roles within the School of Healthcare Sciences, including programme manager, lead for Welsh language, and RPL lead.

I am an experienced educator, working across multiprofessional teams, delivering undergraduate and postgraduate education to home and overseas students.

My research interests lie in advanced (clinical) practice long term ventilation and quality of life, and I have wide links with national and international advanced practice teams and communities.

I was the programme manager for the MSc Advanced Practice and MSc Advanced Clinical Practice from 2009 -2013, and am currently involved in a number of clinical assessment modules at PGT level, as well as at UG level.
