Lecturer, Faculty of Medicine & Health Sciences
I graduated as a Physiotherapist in 1994 and worked clinically in the field of musculoskeletal rehabilitation and rheumatology for 7 years. In 2001 I joined the University of Nottingham as a lecturer, delivering and teaching modules on the BSc Physiotherapy course and was also responsible for the delivery of the clinical component of the course. I completed my MSc at the University of Nottingham in 2004.
In 2009, I was awarded the prestigious Allied Health Professionals Fellowship by Arthritis Research UK to undertake a PhD. I spent 3 years at the Division of Academic Rheumatology where I investigated the relationships between ultrasound features of inflammation, radiographic OA and pain in the knee joint. As part of my Fellowship I undertook an intensive course in Applied Epidemiology in 2010 at the University of Aberdeen.
After completing my PhD in 2013 I have returned my role as a lecturer in the Division of Physiotherapy & Rehabilitation Sciences. I deliver undergraduate teaching on the subjects of evidence-based practice, musculoskeletal disease and disorders, and physical activity and health, as well as supervising MSc students. I am continuing to collaborate with the Division of Academic Rheumatology at the University of Nottingham to develop a number of research bids as well as developing my independent research interests. Osteoarthritis remains my principle interest in terms of research, though I have an appreciation for a wide range of musculoskeletal conditions.
