Now a lecturer in Adult Nursing, and senior tutor for Nursing, I previously carried out research as a Senior Research Nurse and was a Trial Manager running large multi-site studies. I now teach clinical management and the third-year dissertation.

I spent three years at the University of Oxford as a Band 8a Trial Manager, running an oncology Clinical Trial of an Investigative Medicinal Product (CTIMP) looking into myeloproliferative neoplasms. Before this, I worked at Imperial Collage London as a Band 7 Senior Research Nurse, in charge of a team of Band 6 Clinical Research Nurses. Our research studies included active/latent TB and HIV.

I am also Chair of an NHS Research Ethics Committee (REC).

I am passionate about teaching nursing, and passing on my knowledge and experience to improve the future of nursing and healthcare.
