I lecture in Anatomy and Biomedical Sciences and am one of two academic leads for Student Experience in the School of Biosciences. I am a qualified medical doctor (MB BCh) with a background in Cellular and Molecular Pathology and Cancer Biology and Therapeutics, and am passionate about enhancing student experience.

Within Cardiff University, I predominantly teach anatomy to a range of undergraduate and postgraduate students across medical, dental, and biosicences courses. Within my role as Student Experience (Learning Community) Lead, I work with a diverse team to enhance the Bioscience learning community, and sit on a number of teams responsible for management of the School's undergraduate and postgraduate programmes.

Research and Educational Interests

I have biological, educational and pastoral interests. In my educational research, I am interested in the cultivation of engagement and in enriching student experience through a partnership-based approach. I am a strong advocate for a constructivist pedagogical framework which incorporates flipped classroom approaches, interactive elements, peer-learning, and novel educational tools which empower learners and make the learning experience deep, enjoyable, and effective. I also have an interest in the development of professionalism and academic skills (eg. teamwork, leadership, empathy, communication) which are a vital component of early clinical training in particular. Pastorally, my greatest passion lies in enhancing staff and student health and wellbeing. I am especially interested in bolstering peer-connectedness among academic learning communities (particularly during the Covid-19 pandemic), and developing strategies to improve health and wellbeing.
