Associate Professor in NMH

What area does your research focus on?

My clinical research interest is in the physical health of those living with a severe mental illness self-injurious behaviour and restrictive intervention in mental health settings. My international collaborative research is examining the vulnerability and susceptibility to self-injury in young people. My current pedagogic research focuses on how the preregistration nursing curricular programme supports students’ resilience and mental well-being and prepares them as future resilient and self-compassionate practitioners. 

What are the other key aspects of your role?

I was the module convenor, subject Lead and Placement Lead for the BSc & MSc in mental health programmes, providing dissertation supervision to UD & PG courses nationally and internationally including PhD supervision and external examiner.  

What do you like to do outside of work?

I enjoy yoga, walking, badminton, sightseeing, swimming and travelling to new places. 

What do you think you could particularly offer mentoring support with?
  • Supporting early career researchers, especially those from ethnic minority backgrounds in their research endeavours. 
  • Helping them on their research journey and grow into independent and successful researchers.
  • Guiding them to undertake research topics which can be potentially transformational challenging existing assumptions and opening up new avenues for exploration.
