I joined the school of Medical Science back in October 2016 as a Lecturer in Medical Sciences, specialising in Clinical Physiology and Clinical Biochemistry.
I obtained my BSc in Biomedical Science from the University of Chester in 2012. Subsequently I went onto read for a PhD in Clinical Sciences while also completing a Postgraduate Certificate in Higher Education Teaching and Learning. I am a fellow of the Higher Education Academy as well as being an active member of the Institute of Biomedical Science and The Faculty of Physician Associates.
I teach across all taught undergraduate programmes including Medical Science, Biomedical Science and Medical Biology degrees, as well as contributing to the physiology teaching and dissertation supervision of students on the Masters in Clinical Science.
I am the module leader for MSE-1018 Clinical Science in Practice; MSE-2003 Research Skills; MSE-2016 Clinical Biochemistry; MSE-2017 Vocational skills; MSE-3010 Applied Physiology; MSE-3018 Clinical Biochemistry and MSE-3008 Dissertation.
I am also a contributing lecturer on MSE-1017 Key Skills in Medical Science, MSE-1019 Good Laboratory Practice, MSE-1020 Biomedical Practicals as well as project supervisor for MSE-3013 Research Projects.
Other roles include being a member of the SMS Board of Studies, member of the SMS Staff Student Liaison Committee, SMS library rep, SMS Disability tutor and SMS Athena Swan lead.
Current research interests lie in the surgical response at a cellular level of patients undergoing surgical treatments for nephrolithiasis. My PhD work focuses on the routine haematological, biochemical, inflammatory and endothelial response to surgery and the role of phagocytic leukocytes in patients undergoing flexible ureterenoscopy for the treatment of kidney stones.
