I joined the School of Nursing and Midwifery in 2014 as a Lecturer. I am a Registered Nurse, Registered Nurse Teacher and Senior Fellow of Higher Education Academy and Fellow of Royal Society of Arts. I lead MMedSci Advanced Nursing Studies and Chair the School of Nursing and Midwifery’s Research Ethics Committee.

Before joining the School of Nursing and Midwifery, University of Sheffield, I worked as a Lecturer in the Faculty of Health and Social Care, University of Hull. I have been involved in gender based violence and health care research for over 10 years, and have published over 30 papers in peer review journals. I have been involved in several national and international research projects

Research interests

I am interested in exploring gender based violence especially intimate partner violence from the perspective of victims and perpetrators. I am also interested in exploring health, consanguinity and genetics, and inequalities in health care experiences and health outcomes and how reparation and training of health professionals such as doctors, nurses, and allied health professionals can contribute to tackling such inequalities. I was awarded the Mary Seacole Leadership Award in 2015 that allowed me to explore importance of language concordant communication from the perspective of bilingual nurses.
