Personal profile

Overview

I started my career as a surgical nurse. I obtained a Masters in Public Health and moved into health improvement and women's health roles. I have worked as a research nurse and researcher in a number of different contexts.

I have worked as a lecturer for 7 years.  In my previous role, I was Programme Leader for the MSc Nursing. I am currently a lecturer on the MSc Health Studies and also input to the Pre Reg Nursing programme.

Area of academic expertise - outline

I am interested in research highlighting people's experiences of health and illness.  My PhD focused on the post discharge concerns of older people after fall-induced hip fracture.  I used Grounded Theory to highlight how older people attempted to 'take control' after this sudden injury, balancing risk of future falls and help available to them from family and health professionals.

Current research activities

I currently supervise 3 doctoral students and 4 MSc dissertation students.

Desired research direction

I enjoy supervising students at doctoral and MSc level.  I would be interested in supervising a student undertaking a grounded theory.
