Currently I lead the Physiotherapy BSc Hons course, with responsibility for securing and managing student clinical placements and mentoring academic staff and clinical educators within our NHS partner trusts. I am committed to providing confidence in teaching excellence across UEL professional health sciences and ensuring clinical placements are fair and equitable for students. I am also a fellow of the Higher Education Academy.
My area of specialty is neuroscience and movement control. Having worked as a neuro clinical specialist in traumatic brain injury for 10 years, I joined the UEL Physiotherapy teaching staff part-time in 2004. I completed my PhD in Balance with upper limb robotics and have gone on to develop a school research and education group in balance and movement across the life course (L:MBER). I am now full time and have a key interest in the design and establishment of new clinical courses, including the collaborative Postgraduate Musculoskeletal Ultrasonography courses.
