I am clinical placement coordinator for the course. Alongside my teaching work I am actively involved in research, and completed my PhD in April 2015. My topic area is an investigation into accidental falls in multiple sclerosis. .
Qualifications

I gained my Graduate Diploma in Physiotherapy from the Queen Elizabeth School of Physiotherapy, Birmingham in 1990. Following this I spent two years completing a rotational post where I gained clinical experience in a variety of settings covering the range of ''core'' specialities in physiotherapy practice. My first senior post was specialising in medical respiratory care, including cardiac and respiratory rehabilitation programs, as well as working with patients in the acute stages following stroke and other neurological problems.

Subsequently I moved onto other posts with a greater focus on rehabilitation of patients with neurological disability and multi-pathology associated with ageing. I spent time working in an in-patient neuro-rehabilitation unit, then moved into a post working as a core member of a multi-disciplinary community rehabilitation team which specialised in the assessment and management of people with long term conditions (predominantly neurology) and complex needs. My most recent clinical post (2002-2005) was working as a locality lead physiotherapist, where I carried day-to day responsibility for the running of the physiotherapy service, as well as maintaining a clinical case load working with older clients, as both in-patients and in the community
