On graduation I steadily built up clinical experience in in-patient rehabilitation over the years. I started my role as a part-time senior lecturer in Kingston University in 2010. I continued to work clinically part-time, and started my PhD part-time in 2013. Since then I have successfully submitted the study proposal, obtained appropriate approval, collected data from lymphoma patients, analysed data, attended national and international conferences, and have had two papers on the REIL study published in peer-reviewed journals. I am currently in the write-up stage.
