Personal profile

Personal Statement

Following many years of clinical practice, I joined the University of Strathclyde in 2012 where I am currently employed as a Teaching Fellow within the Department of Bioengineering's National Centre for Prostheics and Orthotics.  I teach biomechanics and clinical skills to undergraduate and postgraduate students to prepare them for work within the Prostheic and Orthotic industry. In addition to my teaching responsibilities I supervise MSc, MPhil and PhD students, and Iam involved in several research and KE projects.

My main teaching and research interests are in upper limb prosthetics. I am interested in the ways that technology can be integrated with the user to improve their quality of life. I am also interested in treatment protocols and usage rates.

Having spent many years working overseas I am aware of the worldwide skill shortage in Prosthetics and Orthotics and to meet some of these needs I have developed a program of Short Courses and CPD available through the university.

Teaching Interests

I am responsible for teaching the Upper Limb Biomechanics and Control Concepts, and Upper Limb Prosthetics classes within our BSc(Hons) Prosthetics & Orthotics course, as well as other classes such as Transtibial Prosthetics and Human Biological Sciences. I also teach Research Methodology to postgradute students and supervise a number of undergraduate and postgraduate student projects.

I have an interest in shape capture and CAD, and have been leading the intergration of these into P&O teaching to reflect modern clinical practice.
