I am a lecturer in Podiatry within the DNBSPPR Division.

  • Overview
  • Research Interests
  • Teaching and Learning

I have worked as a Podiatrist (NHS GG&C), a Podiatry Specialist in MSK (NHS Shetland), an Advanced Podiatrist in Rheumatology (NHS Ayrshire and Arran) and a Lead Podiatrist in Orthopedics/MSK Service Lead (NHS Lothian).

I commenced my post here with QMU in January 2018. I am currently undertaking my professional doctorate degree with QMU.

I have completed further clinical training largely in the field of MSK, including injection therapy and medical ultrasound.

My MSc centered on qualitative research and the philosophy of phenomenology. I am continuing exploration of phenomenology in my Professional Doctorate Degree here at QMU (currently ongoing) exploring Clinical Supervision in the Podiatry/AHP setting.

Active Research Interests: Musculoskeletal Medicine, Clinical Supervision in the AHP Setting, General Medicine, Health Care National Strategy, Biomechanics and Approaches to Person Centered Health Care

I work across both the undergraduate and postgraduate modules in Podiatry. I lead clinical studies 1 for year 1 and also do some teaching in other fields i.e. radiography on Ultrasound. I regularly deliver training to external post graduate health care professionals i.e. NHS staff and private colleagues across the AHP professions.
