Overview

I re-joined the Medical Imaging team at the University of Exeter in 2018, having been Principal Radiographer for a number of years for a MRI department within the South West region.

I have had a varied career as a diagnostic radiographer, ultimately specialising in MRI, and have held roles that included clinical practice, management and leadership. I have been employed in a variety of settings including the NHS and the independent sector as well as academia.

In addition to teaching and supporting research for programmes within Medical Imaging I also fulfill other professional roles including:

  • Reviewer for ‘Radiography’ journal

  • Approval and Accreditation Assessor for the Society and College of Radiographers

  • External Examiner (postgraduate CT and MRI) for City, University of London.

  • Deputy National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) Imaging Champion – South West Region
