Senior Lecturer in Physiotherapy

I am a Senior Lecturer in Physiotherapy, with specific expertise in neurological physiotherapy, elderly care, rehabilitation and amputee management. My background is as a Physiotherapist, working in the community and specialising in neurological conditions. I have a strong belief in holistic care and as such, I'm passionate about educating students to understand the needs of the individual patient, rather than the condition.

I have been working in Higher Education as a lecturer for 17 years, and in this time, have had the privilege to teach a wide range of students, studying diverse programmes. While Physiotherapy has always been my focus, I have taught sports science, biomedical sciences, social work, teacher training, work-based learning and CPD. As such, I have a broad range of skills and a clear understanding of student learning needs across a spectrum of subject areas.

I have undertaken a wide range of research projects across primarily learning and teaching, focusing my own research on the role of video-based communications technologies, in supporting placement-based learning. My focus has been on the individual nature of learning need and the implications that this has upon efficacy of video-based communications media.

My earlier research was primarily mixed methods and pragmatic in nature, but more recent research has developed my interest and skills in pure qualitative methods, specifically the use of narrative. Building on my interest in individual need, I am currently involved in research investigating the experiences of veteran amputees, in relation to decisions made about prosthetic limb prescription.
