Personal profile

Research interests

My current research interests are focused around professional values and behaviours, particularly in the health and social care setting. I have an interest in Fitness to Practice for students and qualified health professionals. I am also continuing to develop my work in the area of Compassion, exploring how healthcare students experience this whilst on practice placement.

This area of professional values and behaviours also informs my interest in pedagogic research as we consider how aspects such as compassion can be embedded and nurtured through the curriculum and how the student experience impacts on the development of the student as a professional.

Supervisory Interests

I would be very interested to work with students exploring aspects of professional values and behaviours, in particular compassion and fitness to practice. I would like to work with students researching how academic and placement based experience influences the development of the student as a health professional, considering aspects such as communities of practice and professional identity.
