Mr James Alexander


I am a senior lecturer within the department of rehabilitation sciences teaching on the pre-registration physiotherapy programmes at St George's University, London. 

I graduated with a BSc (hons) Physiotherapy degree from the University of the West of England, Bristol in 2007 and worked in various NHS trusts. In 2010 I specialised in the field of spinal cord injuries and in 2014 I completed an MSc in Advancing Spinal Cord Injuries Management whilst working at the National Spinal Injuries Centre through Bucks New Uni.

I continue to work clinically for the NHS in the field of neurology in London whilst also working academically. I teach on a variety of modules and have active research interests clinically in neurological rehabilitation and educationally in technology-enhanced learning.
