I joined Alliance Manchester Business School in January 2014 as a Lecturer in Health Care Management and as a tutor and cohort director on the NHS Leadership Academy's Elizabeth Garrett Anderson (MSC Healthcare Leadership) programme. I am currently acting Deputy Director for the Higher Specialist Scientific (HSST) programme Unit A modules. In addition, I am a module lead for health economics in the MSc International Healthcare Leadership programme; joint lead for Module A1 on professionalism and professional practice as part of the HSST programme; a contributor to the Business of Healthcare Module (BMAN31781) and an accredited facilitator of the ExperienceChange simulation, the Oshry Organization Workshop and the NHS Leadership Academy's Healthcare Leadership Model 360.

Prior to joining the university, I studied Health Economics and Health Care Management at postgraduate level, worked in the English National Health Service as a manager from 2000-07 and then at De Montfort University, lecturing in health care management from 2007-13, from where I was awarded the Vice Chancellor's Distinguished Teaching Award in 2012 and the University's Teacher Fellowship in 2013.

I was awarded my PhD in Business and Management from Alliance Manchester Business School in 2016. My research focussed on a case study of change in medical education.

In 2015, I led a writing project for the Higher Education Acdemy (£25,000) at the Business School, which provided primer guides to teaching topics in higher education. In 2017, I am part of an Alliance MBS/King's Fund project conducting a scoping review of NHS Improvement's Developing People: Improving Care framework.
