Professor of Child and Family Health
After 11 years in children’s and intensive care nursing, and 14 years in nurse education, I joined the University in 2002 as Senior Lecturer in Child Health Research. In 2006 I was appointed Professor of Child & Family Health. I am the Director of CYP@Salford: a multi-professional research group focused on enhancing services, improving outcomes and evidencing impacts on children and families. I am a leader in research and professional issues among colleagues in Britain and Ireland. I work with colleagues to develop novel means of engagement and research with children and young people, especially with a mobile research laboratory.
