Profile summary

Senior lecturer; Nuclear Medicine Pathway specialist in the radiography team and lecturer for the BSc Dianostic Radiography undergraduate programme, focusing mostly on the field of Radiation science. The post includes facilitating the learning of radiography students in seminar groups around themes of collaboration, patient care and professionalism.

In addition to teaching and supervising, responsibilities include personal tutoring as a Personal Academic Tutor, to 1st, 2nd & 3rd year students offering support and delivery of group information as well as individual tutorials. Academic responsibility for six undergraduate modules, one of which is a the Specialist Imaging Modalities module which focuses on the Physics of the various radiography modalities. This encompasses not just teaching and assessment, but leading the development of the modules. 

Additionally a keen researcher with additional responsibilities for the Institute of Physics and Engineering in Medicine as External Training Moderator and Viva examiner for IPEM Nuclear Medicine technologist. STEM ambassador and External Examiner for the MSc in Nuclear Medicine at the University of West England.

I have recently become the Link tutor for William Harvey Hospital, one of our student placement sites and find that I am enjoying the additional skills required for collaborating with a clinical department. 

Sessional Lecturer in Nuclear Medicine at the University of Exeter.

Research and knowledge exchange

I am interested in research projects in the specialised area of radiopharmacy.

I have worked in North America and Brazil in the past and enjoy delivering lectures to students abroad, areas such as P.E.T. and SPECT CT which are are still being explored abroad and the transfer of knowledge is a useful means to learn about how other countries overcome obstacles and solve problems. 

I am linked to the Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do Norte (UFRN), in Brazil and would like to pursue an exchange programme with their undergraduate students in the future.

Teaching and subject expertise

My specialist field is Nuclear Medicine and Medical Physics, my areas of interest are Radiopharmacy and therapy using I-131 for Thyroid ablations.

I am a member of the British Nuclear Medicine Society and a member of Institute of Physics and Engineers in Medicine.
