I am a lecturer on the Therapeutic Radiography programme within the Institute of Health and Social Care. I qualified as Therapeutic Radiographer in November 2018 from the University of the West of England, Bristol. I joined LSBU in 2022 having previously worked clinically and as Practice Educator at The Royal Marsden Hospital. I teach across all of the Therapeutic Radiography programmes and I'm passionate about radiotherapy clinical practice and developing practice.

My particular research interest is the improvement of radiotherapy techniques. I recognize the importance and impact of clinical advancements on quality of life and treatment outcomes.

My previous research includes a literature review on proton therapy for breast cancer: a review of the side effects. I have also been involved in a quality improvement programme, focusing on reducing PTV margins on whole CNS VMAT radiotherapy treatment.
