I graduated form the University of Salford in 2006, with a 1st class BSc (Hons) Physiotherapy degree.

Following this, I secured a sponsorship from rcbcwales (research capacity building collaboration, Wales) to undertake a PhD in respiratory physiotherapy at Cardiff University which I completed in December 2010.

Presently my research work includes patients with chronic lung disease and patients with cancer. I also contribute to teaching on the undergraduate and postgraduate physiotherapy courses, and I am currently undertaking the Postgraduate Certificate in Undergraduate Teaching and Learning (PCUTL).
