Profile summary

I am a qualified Diagnostic Radiographer and still regularly practice in the NHS. My current position at Canterbury Christ Church University is Programme Director for the MSc Medical Imaging pathway. I am also a Senior Lecturer in the Image Interpretation modules for the BSc (Hons) Diagnostic Radiography programme, MSc Clinical Reporting programme, MSc Physcian Associate studies and the Surgical/Emergency Medicine Internship Programme. 

I am also the lead for the Clinical and Medical Sciences Research Hub at Canterbury Christ Church University.

Research and knowledge exchange

I am currently the project lead for study design, participant recruitment, data collection and analysis for multiple observer performance studies in clinical reporting and advanced clinical practice in diagnostic radiography. 

Teaching and subject expertise

My specialist expertise is image interpretation education, anatomy, physiology and pathology. I use my past and current clinical experience and skills, along with current peer review research evidence to deliver high quality teaching in a wide range of formats including campus based lectures, e-learning and blended learning provision, problem based learning, distance learning initiatives, image viewing workshops and formal examinations. 

As a radiographer and researcher I actively use and encourage research in my teaching practice to support the evolving future of the profession in role extension and advanced practice.
