Research Interests

Since joining Cardiff University as a radiotherapy and oncology lecturer, I have been fortunate to undertake small scale research to complete my MSc. The topic of my study was ‘Learning within the Clinical Environment’ and looked at how students perceive their own learning when they are faced with the complexities of the clinical workplace. I am interested in the area of learning and teaching and in particular problem based learning – I am hoping that this research area can be expanded on in the future.

I am a member of a Departmental research team that will explore how radiography impacts on lifestyle. As part of this, the group is currently looking at the psychosocial impact of treatment in survivors of paediatric cancers. This is an exciting topic area which to date has little published work based solely in the UK.
