I am currently a Clinical Fellow, teaching on the undergraduate and postgraduate nursing programmes. I have been a qualified mental health nurse since 2003, with a specialist clinical expertise and interest in substance use and sexual health/BBVs. I have been involved in teaching within healthcare providers and the higher education sector since 2013, with an interest in public health, prescribing practice and clinical education. I am currently doing my PhD part time in Global Health, which is looking at the use of HIV pre-exposure prophlaxis use within the context of sexualised drug use among the MSM popualtion. My previous service evaluation/research experience and interest lays within alcohol/drug use, HIV prevention and the wider biopsychosocial impact on high-risk populations.

My over arching research interest orientates towards public health, social justice and health inequalities. This specifically includes service evaluation/research experience and interest in substance misuse and sexual health/blood borne viruses. I have a specific interest in the advancement of HIV bio-medical interventions and the wider risk reduction strategies, but framing this within the wider paradigm of biopsychosocial health and well-being.
