I joined the University of Wolverhampton in 2011 as a Senior Research Fellow, and have held the appointment of Reader since 2016.
As a Registered Nurse, I specialised in the field of adult intensive care. The knowledge and experience gained contributed to my interest in end-of-life care in the context of acute and critical illness. I actively support the strategic development of collaborative research within the Faculty of Education, Health and Wellbeing (FEHW) Centre for Health and Social Care Improvement (CHSCI). My area of research expertise primarily focuses on qualitative research methodologies and methods.
I have substantial experience in higher education, contributing to both undergraduate and postgraduate programmes of study. I currently lead a module for a Professional Doctorate programme of study, and supervise a number of doctoral students. I enjoy writing for publication and have disseminated research to a wide variety of audiences through national and international conference presentations.
