Research Interests

I am currently researching into the experiences of international students at the clinical interface.


Prior to my present position I was a paediatric hospital social worker and, thereafter, worked for 13 years as a senior lecturer in the Further Education sector in social/health related areas. I established a HND access course for mature students in health and social care. I had a developmental role as a Senior lecturer which involved supporting lecturers who were new to the profession and those whom found the art a little difficult to master.

In addition to my college role I was appointed as an Inspector of tertiary colleges for health and social care.

Currently, I teach: social policy, ethics and law on the MSc, and BSc degree programmes in the School of Healthcare Studies.
