Programme Leader MSc Nursing, Senior Lecturer

I am the Programme Leader and Senior Lecturer for MSc Nursing. I am also a PhD Student at the University exploring 'How do Women experience Motherhood, Higher Education (as students) and Paid Employment concurrently?'.

I obtained my BA Sociology in 2015, followed by my teaching degree (PCET PGCE) in 2018, and then returned to study MSc Inequality and Society on becoming a mother, graduating in 2020. 

My research interests lie within qualitative research and interviewing participants about the inequalities they have experienced. Frameworks I have used in research sit within feminist theory and social constructionism, with critical realism also being introduced as part of my conceptual framework for my PhD thesis. 

My pedagogical approach is constructed with a commitment to developing effective and engaging learning environments using action learning and learning needs analysis as the core emphasis of constructing powerful and engaging learning environments that enhance my cultural competency and that of my students.
