Biography

I joined the School of Health Sciences in October 2016 as a Lecturer in Health Sciences on completion of my PhD 'Understanding, recognising and preventing dehydration in older residents living in care homes: a mixed methods study'. I have continued to develop my research interests in this field, exploring ways of supporting older care home residents to drink well to prevent dehydration. 

My teaching roles include teaching on pre-and post registration courses at undergraduate and postgraduate levels across the Faculty of Medicine and Health, post-graduate supervision and module lead for the MclinEd Dissertation. I am currently a primary supervisor for a PhD student who is investigating how to support people with dementia to drink well.

Prior to joining the UEA, I trained and worked as both a general nurse and midwife before joining the Norfolk Arthritis Register, a longitudinal observational study of inflammatory polyarthritis (IP) aiming to establish the cause, incidence and outcome of IP. My research nurse and managerial roles provided extensive research experience.
