About

I am a Senior Lecturer in Occupational Therapy. I work across the Pre-Registration and Post Registration Occupational Therapy Programmes.

Teaching responsibilities

I lead the Post Graduate Advanced Occupational Therapy and Hand Therapy Independent Scholarship Module, which allows students to investigate topics of their choice, through primary or secondary research. I also teach on a range of pre-registration occupational therapy modules.

Professional interests

I am interested in professional practice and its interface with the knowledge base and theoretical underpinning of Occupational Therapy.

Research interests

I am interested in the lived experiences of students studying occupational therapy, specifically those who have additional support requirements.
