In 2011, I successfully completed a postgraduate certificate in Health Research achieving a merit. In 2014, I started a part time MA in Applied and Professional Ethics achieving a Merit grade (2016).

I am a personal tutor and module lead. My teaching duties involve presentations, coaching and assessing the clinical and interpersonal skills of dental hygiene and dental therapy students with patients on clinic. I teach skills necessary for lifelong learning, such as literature searching, and appraising the scientific health research literature. I have evaluated students' draft literature reviews and provided written formative feedback to enable students to weigh up evidence and address complex issues.
I have a keen interest in developing ethical dental professionals and have been involved with marking dental undergraduate ethics posters and have helped out on professionalism days.
