Researcher biography

I have worked as an academic with a passion for biomedical and health education for over two decades. I have extensively taught medical, nursing, paramedicine, rehabilitation science and biomedical science students. My primary teaching responsibilities are/were delivery of physiology, anatomy, pathology, pharmacology, pathophysiology, clinical methodology, clinical bedside coaching, basic and advanced life skills, procedural skills and surgical skills (virtual) with cohort sizes from 10 to 1500 students. By creating a unique amalgam between biomedical and clinical concepts I have enhanced learning and students' experience. My significant contributions to health professionals' education have been complemented via multiple institutional awards and national teaching awards and nominations . As an academic, I have developed and implemented various innovative teaching methodologies. These include eLearning, mLearning, VoPP, flipped classrooms, patient-based and simulation-based learning to enhance students' understanding of basic and clinically applied science.

I enjoy many facets of my academic and professional roles that have defined me as a CBL tutor, course & module coordinator, lecturer, evolving researcher, team leader and member. I am humbled by student feedback which has furthered my passion to positively impact academic and prosocial behaviours in coming generations of healthcare professionals.
