Senior Lecturer with a background in clinical midwifery, fertility/infertility and clinical research.
I am also a registered midwife.
Teaching and supervision
I am module leader for:
- Introduction to Research and Evidence
- Philosophy for Midwifery Practice
I also teach on other modules and the Midwifery Doctorate programme and I am 2 lead for undergraduate midwifery students.
I am a dissertation and doctoral supervisor.
Since 2009 I have worked on research studies mainly focused on causes of infertility, reproductive failure and fertility treatments themselves. My PhD was an ethnographic study of infertile couples as they started medical treatments, including IVF, to help their situation. I am particularly interested in using qualitative methodologies as an alternative research paradigm, for example in investigating patient experiences. My current research interests include transition to parenthood after IVF, fertility, contraception and pre-conception care and more laterly, minority ethnic experiences of educational and healthcare institutions.
- Fertility and Assisted Reproduction
