Senior Lecturer in Pharmaceutical Chemistry
I am a Chartered Chemist (CChem), Member of the Royal Society of Chemistry (MRSC), Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (FHEA), Pharmaceutical Scientist in the Royal Pharmaceutical Society (SRPharmS), and Vice-Chair of the RSC Newcastle Upon Tyne and NE Coast Local Section Committee.
I also coordinate the local heat of the RSC School's Analyst Competition; held annually at the University which welcomes teams of school students to compete to solve diverse analytical problems.
Teaching and supervision
I am the Module Leader for BSc Biopharmaceutical and BSc Cosmetic Science Level 4 Chemistry (BPS110 , CSC101). I also coordinate chemistry at Level 5 on MPharm Pharmacy.
