About me

I joined UWE in 2017 as a senior lecturer in applied pharmacology. I am a primary care pharmacist with particular interest in diabetes care. I completed my PhD in 2012 at the School of Pharmacy, University of Manchester. This research explored the mechanisms of sensitivity/ resistance to glucocorticoid-induced apoptosis in acute lymphobalstic leukaemia. From 2013-2017 I worked at the University of Hertfordshire as a lecturer of pharmacy practice. I developed and led a number of modules and programmes including Clinical Pharmacy and Patient Safety, Pharmacuetical Sciences and Therapeutics, the pharmacist pre-registration training programme and the pharmacist pre-registration tutor training programme. I was awarded two HEE grants in 2016 and 2017 to develop  and deliver train the trainer programmes for pharmacists.

Area of expertise

My research focuses on innovation adoption in healthcare. I am particularly keen to understand how patients, healthcare professionals and healthcare organisations adopt innovations, how they are implemented, and how these innovations can bring about the improvements needed. I explore the perspectives of key stakeholders, using qualitative and quantitative approaches, to understand what works for whom and why, and how service delivery models can be improved to meet patients’ demands. 

I am a member of the Cardiac Innovation Team at UWE Big-DEAL with a specific interest in Deep Prescribing, Conversational AI for End-to-End Consultation, and AI Assurance.
