After graduating from Sheffield Hallam University with first class honours I worked for two years in professional football at Sheffield Wednesday F.C. I then joined the NHS, working at several major London hospitals in the areas of musculoskeletal, orthopaedics and hand therapy. Whilst working as a specialist musculoskeletal physiotherapist at Chelsea and Westminster I completed a NIHR funded Masters of Research in Clinical Practice (MResCP) at St. Georges University of London and was awarded the prize for Outstanding Achievement on graduating. I returned to clinical work and started lecturing at Brunel University before joining St. Georges in 2017. I continue to teach musculoskeletal physiotherapy alongside research methods at undergraduate level.
I have recently been involved in the development of a new postgraduate Advanced Clinical Practice masters programme. As the MSK Pathway Lead I oversee the progression of students through this route and lecture around physical activity promotion in healthcare.
