Librarian (School of Medicine)

I joined Brighton and Sussex Medical School (BSMS) as Assistant Librarian in 2010. In 2013 I gained FHEA status via the University of Sussex and in 2016 moved to the University of Brighton to work with the School of Pharmacy and Biomedical Sciences as their Information Adviser. I have been teaching literature searching and finding evidence for nine years.

As part of my role at BSMS, I was also part of the Brighton and Sussex NHS Library and Knowledge Service team, searching the literature directly for clinicians to inform their research and practice.



Teaching and supervision

I am the Librarian with responsibility for supporting the School of Medicine. My main role is connecting students and staff to quality resources to support learning and teaching.
