Personal profile

Research interests

 

I am Head of School of Health Sciences and Professor at Brighton University. We provide education in nursing, midwifery, physiotherapy, occupational therapy, podiatry, paramedic practice, public health, foundation degree and postgraduate taught/research programmes. Throughout my career I have worked in the UK, Germany, The Netherlands and New Zealand. I am an active researcher alongside my leadership role.

 

My research focuses on new rehabilitation approaches and measuring meaningful rehabilitation outcomes. Recent examples of my work include a study of peer mentoring for people with traumatic brain injury funded by the NZ Health Research Council and a study of the validity of the Strengths and Difficulties Questionnaire funded by the NZ Ministry of Health.
