Programme Leader and Senior Lecturer in Healthcare Sciences (Cardiac Physiology)
I qualified as a Cardiac Physiologist in 2007 and since then I have worked in several hospitals in the North East specialising in echocardiography and cardiac rhythm management. I transferred to the University of Sunderland in 2015 to teach on Healthcare Science and Physiological Sciences.
I maintain an honorary contract with the NHS and continue to perform clinical work around my teaching commitments.
Teaching and supervision
I am currently the Programme Leader for Healthcare Science (Cardiac Physiology), and in addition to teaching on this and other courses, I supervise students on clinical placements within diagnostic cardiology departments.
Research interests for potential research students
I have an interest in a wide range of diagnostic tests including ECG interpretation, exercise testing and ambulatory monitoring.
I also have an interest in cardiac rhythm management, specifically the legal and ethical implications of cardiac implantable devices.
