Professional biography

Senior Lecturer and Science Staff Tutor, School of Life, Health and Chemical Sciences, Faculty of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics.


Teaching interests

I am currently chairing the production of a new module in mental health science, to be presented in 2020. I have previously been module chair of SDK228: Science of the mind: investigating mental health and SD226: Biological psychology.

I have written and produced teaching materials on dementia (for SDK228); the science of olfaction (for SD329: Signals and perception: the science of the senses) and personalised medicine (for S201: Science and Society).

I have been an associate lecturer on many modules in the biological and health sciences, including SDK228, SD226, SD329 and S827:Concept to clinic.
