Currently I teach year 2  P4P 'phantom head' clinical skills in the new Dental Simulation Suite . I demonstrate clinical techniques using video link to students and suppervise their hand on clinical skills learning on simulated patients.

I am keen to utilize the full potential of our new Clinical Simulation Suite to illustrate the innovative advances in dental materials and digital technology .

My research interests involve materials and techniques to improve removeable prosthodontic and Implant practice.

I am part of the Cardiff Institute of Tissue Engineering and Repair and work closely with Professors Waddington and Sloan and Dr Ayre supporting recent  successful funding bids for research into bacterial adhesion to metalic surfaces, a part externally funded Phd studentship and a KTP program.

Through the above group I am a chapter  contributor  to Professor Waddington and Sloan's recent publication ' Tissue Engineering and Regeneration in Dentistry - current perspectives.' Published by Wiley Blackwell in December 2016 and actively involved in finding synergies between research -clinical application and technology advances and co supervise a Phd student with above collegues.

Prof Robert Williams has allowed me to support his team conducting materials technology reserch at Cardiff Metropolitan University  and  I have co authored  an application of digital scanning and additive manufacturing in dental technology in International peer reviewed journal .

I am currently collaborating with a number of  US  dental schools on impact of digital technology on undergraduate and postgraduate dentistry  educational curriculum development .
