I started working at the University of Bradford in December 2017 as an Assistant Professor in Pharmacy Practice, promoted to an Associate Professor in Pharmacy Practice in July 2023. Since 2020 I have led the MSc/PGDip Foundation Pharmacy Practice (multi-sector) programme, which is a postgraduate pharmacy practice programme for early career pharmacists in Yorkshire and the north of England.My specialist area of teaching, for undergraduate and postgraduate students, is antimicrobials, antimicrobial stewardship and antimicrobial resistance. I am currently undertaking educational research about teaching, learning and assessment of AMS for pharmacy students through a part-time Doctor of Education degree. My other teaching and research interests are patient & public involvement with postgraduate pharmacy education and use of digital technology to enhance teaching, learning and assessment. Prior to working at the University of Bradford, between 2015-2018, I was a Clinical Academic Lecturer at the University of Manchester and lead for Postgraduate Advanced Clinical Skills (a short course aimed at pharmacists working in the emergency department). Before working as an academic pharmacist, I worked in the NHS as a hospital pharmacist: 1989-1999 at Leeds General Infirmary in various roles including as a Resident pharmacist, Care of the Elderly, Intensive Care and Formulary Management pharmacist and 1999-2015 at Calderdale and Huddersfield NHS Foundation Trust as a Medicine and Care of the Elderly pharmacist and a Senior Antimicrobial Pharmacist. I also worked as a GP Practice Pharmacist in Calderdale between 2001-2003.
