Profile

I joined the School of Health and Related Research in 2003 as an Information Officer for Research Support, chiefly providing to support to NHS Researchers via the former Trent Institute and Trent RDSU. In January 2010 I became a University Teacher/Information Specialist and am currently the Deputy Director of Learning and Teaching at ScHARR. I teach on a variety of courses within ScHARR including our range of the MPH programmes. My teaching covers a wide range of informatics-related topics including literature searching, health promotion, critical appraisal and e-Health. I am the Programme Lead for the MSc International Health Technology Assessment and Reimbursement.

Research interests

My key research interests are around e-learning, e-Health, applications of web2.0 to healthcare, teaching of health informatics and information skills, and support for NHS Librarians and staff to develop key informatics skills.
