Personal profile

Area of academic expertise - outline

Since my PhD studies at The University of Sydney (1990), I have been an active researcher in the insulin-like growth factor fielwd, in particular in the role of the insulin-like growth factor binding proteins in growth and metabolism, in health and disease. Postdoctoral work was supported by a career development award from the Juvenile Diabetes Foundation (International) and an RD Wright Research Fellowship from the Australian National Health and Medical Research Council.

I worked in clinical practice as a Consultant Physician, and Head of Diagnostic Endocrinology at Royal Prince Alfred Hospital in Sydney and then moved to Karolinska Institutet, Stockholm in 1999, first as a Visiting Professor (Wennergren Foundation) and then as a Senior Researcher and docent (Associate Professor) in Endocrinology. During that time my interests in the scholarship of learning and teaching, research-teaching linkages and interprofessional learning emerged. These interests deepened within the context of a Masters in Medical Education (University of Dundee, 2008) and prompted me to move to an environment in which I could develop and champion an integrated approach to academic practice.

At the University of the West of Scotland my research interests in Higher Education have continued to develop, with a particular focus on interprofessional learning for practice.
