I work as a part-time Teaching and Scholarship lecturer in adult nursing teaching at undergraduate level.  I am also completing a part-time PhD with the School of Healthcare Sciences, funded by RCBC Wales.


Qualified in adult nursing from St Mary's Hospital in London in 1995 and later completed a Critical Care Nursing degree.  I worked for nine years in critical care, mainly Accident and Emergency, before moving to Cardiff in 2004 to start a Psychology degree at Cardiff University.  I graduated with a BSc (hons) Psychology in 2007 and then returned to nursing working in uro-oncology research at Velindre Cancer Centre.  I developed an interest in male health, specifically prostate cancer, and went on to work as a Clinical Nurse Specialist for urological cancers until 2015.

My oncology nursing career lead me to question why men from ethnic minority groups are under-represented in prostate cancer clinics, and this is now the main focus of my research.

My main teaching/research interests are: Male health, urological cancers, social determinants of health, cultural competence (in care delivery), shared decision making.  I am also involved in teaching assessment skills of the acutely unwell adult in the clinical skills simulation suite.
