Health and Social Care
I have been involved in youth work since I was a young person myself and have substantial experience of working in different ways and settings and still volunteer today. My teaching is enhanced by this experience and my current PHD studies.
Senior Lecturer in Health Studies
A love of people, how they tick and interact and their different responses to life’s challenges has always underpinned my desire to nurse as well as influence care delivery through my teaching.

I support research across the Research Priority Area of Sport, Exercise, Health and Wellbeing. I have a background in Exercise Physiology with a particular interest in rock climbing performance and physical activity research.
I have worked with young people in a variety of settings (youth centres, support projects) since graduating and continue to do so - working with young people leaving local authority care. Seeing young people grow and progress has been very rewarding.

I have experience working for a range of youth organisations and always enjoyed the new and exciting experiences this brings. Having worked in a range of different environments enables me to bring practice examples into lecture discussions.

Having spent a number of years in practice working with incredibly vulnerable people, I’m passionate about helping students work with care and precision with those in need of help and support.
I’m passionate about getting people involved in social research and believe social theory should be accessible. My key interests (other than research) are disability studies and the sociology of health.

Learning should be enjoyable as well as challenging. I work clinically in the emergency department and have done so across the world. I love the fast paced exciting nature of emergency medicine and like my teaching, no two days are the same!
Senior Lecturer in Social Work
Learning should be enjoyable as well as challenging - I always strive to achieve these goals in my teaching, particularly as I have such engaging subjects as law and policy, and mental health.

My passion for social care stems from a desire to promote change and address inequality and inequity. For nearly 30 years I have straddled academic and practice life - working with many different groups of people. I just love it!
