I am a Chartered Environmental Health Practitioner and a Chartered Member of the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health.

My previous areas of research have included: risk perception and communication; the development of a local authority employee wellbeing strategy; the safety and wholesomeness of irradiated food; and occupationally related Leptospirosis. I have developed and chaired a national conference on Food Poverty.
