About me

I joined UWE in 2017 as a senior lecturer in applied pharmacology. I am a clinical 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. It has two strands – the role of innovation in improving healthcare processes and outcomes, and the factors facilitating its adoption. I have a particular interest in mobile health and how patients, healthcare professionals and organisations can harness the benefits of technology in the context of long-term conditions management.
