I qualified as a diagnostic radiographer in 1989 and worked within the NHS in a variety of hospitals until 1998. During this time I developed special interests in radionuclide imaging and the clinical education of student radiographers. 

I have worked in higher education since 1998 and have developed a wide variety of interests based around my primary role of delivering courses in Diagnostic Radiography. 

I am mainly involved in teaching general and radiographic anatomy, radiographic technique and other aspects of general radiography. I also have interests in interprofessional learning, clinical assessment and curriculum development.
