Biography

I am currently a Senior Lecturer in Podiatry and have been in post since September 2008. I joined the University from the NHS where I held a specialist podiatric post in Diabetes care. I gained my MSc in 2006 with a systematic review of the literature centred on lower limb vascular assessment.

Research and Scholarship

I am currently undertaking my PhD studies with an exploration into the role of the podiatrist in the clinical evaluation of lower limb venous insufficiency.
