My current role involves all aspects of academia, including an active role in course and curriculum development, and teaching at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels.
I act as a research supervisor for students at undergraduate and Masters level.
Alongside my lecturing role, I maintain my clinical expertise by working as an autonomous clinical practitioner in the NHS.
I am a HCPC state-registered Diagnostic Radiographer, having qualified from University College Dublin in 1998. I obtained my Postgraduate Diploma in Medical Ultrasound at Sheffield Hallam University in 2006, and have clinical competencies and expertise in a range of ultrasound examinations.
I completed my PgCLTHE at Sheffield Hallam University in 2014, gaining fellowship of the FHEA, and successfully completed my MSc Medical Ultrasound at Sheffield Hallam University in 2016.
My main research interests relate to the use of high fidelity simulation in Sonographer education, and I am currently working towards achieving my PhD at Sheffield Hallam University.
