I am a registered nurse with experience in cancer, gastroenterology and critical care. I have an MSc in Nursing Research from King’s College, London during which I researched the impact of expanded nursing practice roles. My interest in specialist and advanced practice led me to curriculum development and teaching of Advanced Practice postgraduate courses for Nurses and other Allied Health Professions until 2011. I then moved into researching the sociological aspects of medical science and technologies. I am currently teaching on the Professional Nursing Doctorate in the Department of Nursing while I also research understandings about public and patient involvement and engagement (PPIE) in medical research at the University of Oxford.
