School of Sport, Exercise and Rehabilitation
I am a chartered physiotherapist with over 20 years clinical experience. I worked as physiotherapist in Hong Kong and relocated to Plymouth in 2006. I worked as a respiratory physiotherapist at Derriford Hospital and then as a senior physiotherapist in various NHS rapid response and intermediate care teams across Plymouth and Cornwall. I was a clinical educator and has been teaching in Higher Education since 2007. I am currently a part-time lecturer and runs my own private practice. I am passionate about teaching and training future healthcare professionals. I teach at both postgraduate and undergraduate levels to students of physiotherapy, osteopathic medicine, sport therapy and sport rehabilitation. In addition to my academic and clinical work, I am also studying for a PhD which looks at dynamic balance and vision changes following cataract surgery with different types of implants.
I am key member of the team which developed the pre-registration Integrated Masters in Physiotherapy (M Physio) and the pre-registration Integrated Masters in Osteopathic Medicine (M Ost) degree programmes. In addition, I teach at both undergraduate and postgraduate students of wider programmes across the School of Sports, Health and Wellbeing of the university.
