I commenced my studies at the RJAH Orthopaedic Hospital Foundation Trust in 2005, and in 2009, was awarded a PhD in Biomedical Engineering from Keele University. Since then I have been employed as an academic researcher and senior lecturer at the RJAH/Keele and am also the current Keele’s stakeholder governor for the hospital.
My research interests are musculoskeletal injuries/diseases, spinal cord injuries and pressure sores, focussing on:
Understanding their biology and pathology
Improving their diagnosis and prognosis
Developing and delivering cell-based therapies
Outside of work I am a busy mum of four, life doesn’t allow for many other interests at present!
