After graduating from Sheffield Hallam University with a first class honours I worked for two years in professional football at before joining the NHS. I subsequently worked 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 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.
Senior Lecturer in Rehabilitation Sciences
I lecture across a variety of topics with the main focus being on musculoskeletal assessment and treatment. I also lecture on the research methods, applying knowledge gained on my Masters of Research in Clinical Practice and practical experience undertaking my own research and supervising he work of others.
I conducted research as part of my Masters of Research on Clinical Practice and this was published in 2019 in the Clinical Biomechanics. I continue to supervise research at both undergraduate and masters level.
