Researcher biography

As a Teaching-focused academic in the School of Biomedical Science and a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (FHEA), I am deeply committed to ensuring students grasp and employ biomedical principles across various facets of their education and life journey. I champion the cause of ensuring education is both safe and accessible, and I continually strive to foster a diverse and welcoming learning environment. My research delves into the intricacies of student learning, focusing on the individual and collective obstacles they face in their academic and professional pursuits. I'm enthusiastic about exploring students' self-perceptions, academic journeys, and dynamics with peers, faculty, and the larger academic community, including the university's resources and procedures. A key aspect of my advocacy is supporting neurodiverse students driving forward an inclusive higher education landscape where everyone feels valued and understood.
