Current positions



I have been teaching at the University of Salford firstly, as an external lecturer since 2011, and now as a part-time lecturer since December 2015. I am involved in the teaching and assessment of the BSc (Hons) Physiotherapy programme with particular interests in paediatrics, respiratory care and simulation-based teaching. Following a period as acting Programme Lead for the part-time and degree apprenticeship programme (Feb-May ’23), I am adopting this role permanently and am the co-module lead for Cardio-respiratory Assessment and Management module. My additional roles include professional lead for simulation-based education, professional lead for resuscitation and I am an Academic Misconduct Officer for the School of Health and Society. I am a personal tutor, visiting tutor and provide mentorship to two colleagues.

Areas of Research

I am interested in research in paediatric respiratory care and literature surrounding the educational benefit of simulation-based teaching. My MSc dissertation evaluated the confidence and perceived competence of paediatric physiotherapists delivering respiratory care following simulation-based training.


I am co-module lead for the cardiovascular and respiratory assessment & management module for the full-time and part-time/degree apprenticeship programmes. The 18 years of experience within the NHS and 12 years of teaching, ensure development and delivery of evidence-based and applied module curriculum design. I am able to liaise with Northwest respiratory clinicians for regular specialist input and am an active member of the Association of Chartered Physiotherapists in Respiratory Care Specialist Interest Group and the Academic Forum.
