Dr Ricarda Micallef


I am a registered pharmacist, bringing experience from practice into teaching and research. I started my career working for Boots in various management and training roles, and progressed into academia through a teacher practitioner role. I started at Kingston in 2014 teaching in the Pharmacy Practice team. To bring current practice into teaching I ensure I still locum. I am involved across South London with pharmacist education and training events, and education and training interventions form the basis of my research. My PhD focused on the creation of a framework to support planning, delivery and evaluation of learning events. I am the Co-Chair of the University Athena Swan Self-assessment team.
