Projects per year
I joined the Speech and Language Therapy team in 2007, having previously worked full-time as a clinical speech and language therapist in the NHS. I now work 2 days a week at the University of Strathclyde and retain clinical employment for 3 days a week in a local hospital and I feel privileged to be able to combine academic and clinical remits. I hope to bring a 'real-life' element to my teaching through my clinical work and my academic job helps me to carry out research to answer questions about why and how therapy is effective or not in the clinic. I have experience working with a range of adult acquired communication and swallowing disorders, and currently specialise clinically in voice disorders and adults stammering.
I am interested in exploring the client experience of therapy and clients' views on service provision, and have a specific interest in how therapy for adults who stammer can be delivered through non face-to-face means.
I am responsible for teaching the adult stammering and dysphagia components in the BSc (Hons) Speech and Language Pathology curriculum, and lead on the Continuing Professional Development module. I contribute to teaching in aphasia, dysarthria and adult voice disorders and tutor students on clinical placements.
