Personal profile

Research interests

I am a senior lecturer in physiotherapy in the School of Health Sciences. My research interests span the neurological and rehabilitation fields. I hold a specific interest in caring practice in physiotherapy and rehabilitation, stroke, stroke rehabilitation, qualitative and creative methods, and in particular, hermeneutic phenomenology.

Supervisory Interests

I am interested in supervising qualitative research in a range of topics. I have a particular interest in phenomenology, hermeneutics, creative methods, and patient experience in long term neurological conditions. I am also currently involved in developing a programme of research into the NEUROfit programme.
I supervise research in the rehabilitation field, caring practices, acute stroke care, and other timepoints along the care and rehabilitation pathway. I am interested in the healthcare provider and user experience, how they can contribute to meaningful understanding, and how research findings can translate and inform practice.

I supervise undergraduate and MSc students. I am currently a member of a supervisory team for a doctoral study exploring wellbeing in cancer survivorship. 

Scholarly biography

I qualified from the University of Brighton in 1995, and obtained my MSc in Neurorehabilitation at Brunel University in 2002. I  completed my doctoral study entitled: The acute stroke unit as transitional space: the lived experience of stroke survivors and healthcare practitioners in 2018. I have subsequently presented this work at the International Health Sciences Research Conference in South Carolina, June 2018, and Bournemouth University’s Humanising special interest group.  

I am a member of a team of academic and clinical staff exploring the wellbeing of people with Motor Neurone Disease, and I am currently developing a research programme that investigates the NEUROfit approach.

I have published in the International Journal of Qualitative Methods, Health & Place, Disability & Rehabilitation, the Journal of Interprofessional Care, Scandinavian Journal of Caring Sciences, Physiotherapy Research International, Journal of Nursing and Healthcare of Chronic Illness, and International Journal of Therapy and Rehabilitation, and I peer review for a range of journals.
