I graduated as a physiotherapist in Melbourne, Australia in 1990. I have worked as a physiotherapist in the NHS in the UK, in a variety of positions including musculoskeletal, pain and rheumatology.
I became a lecturer-practitioner in 2001, before moving full-time into education in 2004. I am currently Head of Department of Rehabilitation Sciences in the Faculty of Health Social Care and Education and am responsible for overseeing the management of the pre-registration physiotherapy and occupational therapy programmes as well as new developments in postgraduate provision related to rehabilitation in the faculty.
My teaching interests relate to communication, self management approaches, social justice, reflective practice and professionalism/interprofessional working.
I have gained research experience in a range of pedagogic practices including gender, peer learning, reflective practice and widening participation. I have conducted quantitative and qualitative research, action research and I am currently an Associate Editor of the Physiotherapy Journal. I completed his Doctorate in Education at Kingston University and Roehampton University exploring the construction of gender identity in physiotherapy education using a critical pedagogic approach.
