Dr Aled Jones 

After a career in mental health and adult nursing I entered nurse education in 1997 as a Tutor (Nursing) in Swansea University.  Teaching activities focused on delivering modules in research methods and interpersonal skills to undergraduate, post-graduate and doctoral students. A 2 year secondment as a RCBC post-doctoral Fellow followed the award of my PhD in 2006. Upon my return to Swansea University I was the Health Sciences PhD Programme Director from 2008 until my move to Cardiff University in the summer of 2011.
