Senior Lecturer, School of Health, Sport and Bioscience

Health, Sport and Bioscience

I am a Senior Lecturer in Professional Health Sciences and Module Leader for level 1 Foundations to Practice. I also teach on the Research and Cardiopulmonary Health Modules.

    I am a physiotherapist and have worked at UEL since 2001. My research interests are Community Based Rehabilitation, Qualitative Research Methodologies and Cultural Competency in Practice. My recently Published book entitled 'Disability and Culture: an International and Inter professional perspective' details some of my doctoral research findings. I am the Module Leader for Foundations to Practice and also teach on other modules including Cardiopulmonary Health and Foundations to Research. 


    Overview

    I am part of a civic engagement research group with the department of Psychology. We launched a mental health and well-being portal a year ago. We have continued to develop this project with funding from the London's Scholar and was able to conduct a four day workshop for students who wanted to be trained in becoming interpreters for refugees.  I continue to liaise with a number of community groups in Newham to set of links with community groups and refugees.
