- School Director of Teaching and Learning (Chemistry, Food and Pharmacy)
Areas of interest
As a previous hospital pharmacist, I teach clinical pharmacy to our undergraduate MPharm students. I am involved in experiential learning, through on-campus and workplace placements, and competency-based assessments. As interprofessional learning lead, I coordinate multiple learning events for pharmacy, nursing, physician associate, speech and language therapist, occupational therapist, physiotherapist, midwifery, paramedic and medic students. I am a Senior Fellow of the Higher Education Academy and Mental Health First Aider.
My research activities focus on educational research, pharmacist resilience and student wellbeing. I am currently undertaking a doctorate in education, exploring pharmacy student engagement. I am a founding member of a global community of practice for pharmacy workforce resilience research. I have extensive experience of supervising undergraduate and postgraduate masters research projects.
