Senior Lecturer in Occupational Therapy

I am an Occupational Therapist and Senior Lecturer on BSc (Hons) Occupational Therapy.

I have an extensive clinical background, specialising in paediatrics, sensory processing differences, people living with PMLD (profound and multiple learning disabilities), postural management, and wheelchair services. I have worked in both acute and community physical occupational therapy settings.

I have previous HE teaching experience from Sheffield Hallam University, and I gained management experience from a senior role in a third-sector charity organisation. I have also worked with the Ministry of Justice as a Registered Intermediary, facilitating access and engagement for young and vulnerable witnesses with the criminal justice system.

I am a qualified Sensory Integration Practitioner in ASI and currently spend one day per week in clinical practice working with children with sensory processing differences.

Research interests for potential research students

  • Occupational therapy
  • Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder
  • Lived experiences and co-production


I hold an MRes and my research topic was the lived experiences of a person with PMLD as they sought real, paid employment, facilitated by occupational therapy.

I am undertaking a Professional Doctorate investigating FASD and sensory processing needs with pre-school children.
