Overview

I joined the University in 2015 after a significant time as a Clinical radiographer working in South Wales. I have a particular interest in the extended role of the Radiographer and Radiographer led Reporting (Musculo-skeletal) as well as the role of radiology in non-accidental injury.

I currently lead Diagnostic Radiography specific modules which reflect Radiographer Reporting, the role of the radiographer in complex radiological investigations and the management of patients with complex needs. 

My post graduate teaching centres on MSK reporting

I am currently the Programme Manager for the Diagnostic Radiography and Imaging programme
