Teaching Fellow – Safety, Health and Environment


I am a Chartered Environmental Health Practitioner and a Chartered Member of the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health. I have had a long career in various Environmental Health roles and senior leadership positions in two large local authorities – leading on the delivery of employee wellbeing, occupational health and health and safety services. After qualifying in Environmental Health, I gained post graduate qualifications such as an MSc in Occupational Safety and Health and an MBA.

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.

I am now teaching on both Master’s and undergraduate courses and I am the Module Leader for Safety Conservation.
