Projects per year
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.
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.
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. I also teach Research Methodology to postgradute students and supervise a number of undergraduate and postgraduate student projects.
