  • Overview
  • Research Interests
  • Teaching and Learning

Following qualification from Glasgow Caledonian University in 2001 with a BSc (Hons) in Diagnostic Radiography I worked for 19 years in NHS Lothian gaining a wealth of knowledge and experience in many imaging modalities including General radiography, Paediatric radiography, Theatre imaging, CT, MRI, Lithotripsy, Nuclear Medicine and Intervention.

My specialist interest is in Neuroimaging with a particular focus on Neurointervention. Working in Neuro was both challenging and rewarding, and as the Lead Neurointerventional radiographer I had to work effectively as part of a multidisciplinary team to provide care for critically ill patients.

Throughout my career I have always been passionate about teaching and personal development working with my peers and students alike both in the clinical and academic settings. As a Lecturer in Radiography at Queen Margaret University I now have the opportunity to devote my time whole heartedly on preparing the next generation of professionals for their first destination role in healthcare. On a more personal level I have most recently completed an MSc in Forensic Radiography at the University of Teesside and therefore hope to have an active role as a Forensic Radiographer working with the Prison and Police Custody teams in Edinburgh
