I'm an Academic & Clinical Lecturer with the Diagnostic Radiography team at Cardiff University, leading on Learning Technology and Simulation.

My clinical role with Cardiff University is in partnership with Swansea Bay University Health Board & NHS Wales, providing clinical education to radiographers within the Swansea region.

My academic teaching covers a variety of topics within the undergraduate and postgraduate Radiography courses at the School of Healthcare Science.

I'm a HCPC accredited Diagnostic Radiographer, Society of Radiographers Member, and member of the Association of Radiography Educators.


Former Radiographer & Senior Radiographer in NHS Wales 2005-2016 - rotating through general radiography, fluoroscopy, theatre, cardiology & Nuclear Medicine (particularly Nuclear Cardiology).

A clinical mentor's role within my Local Health Board (and subsequent Practice Education accreditation with the Society and College of Radiographers) led to a Clinical Tutor secondment with Cardiff University in Spring 2015, overseeing clinical education in what is now Swansea Bay University Health Board. A full time dual role (Academic & Clinical Lecturer) with Cardiff University began in Autumn 2016, leading to completion of MSc(D) in Radiography at Cardiff.

I am involved in technology and simulation in Diagnostic Radiography, including implementation of Shaderware (simulation software) and MyProgress (clinical portfolio). I teach on a variety of modules within both undergraduate and postgraduate programmes.
