Research overview

My broad research interests are in the areas of public health  and undergraduate medical education. My public health research looks at infectious diseases and the role of paediatric public health in secondary care (with a focus on children's public health in acute care settings). My education research focuses on the hidden aspects of the undergraduate medical curriculum - including the role of learning environments and the influence of social networks. 

Current Research

Current projects include piloting a public health intervention for children/carers attending the Paediatric Emergency Department (funded by the Sir Halley Stewart Trust).

Current Teaching

I am involved in teaching students across all five years of the undergraduate medical programme and supervise several postgraduate students.

Additional Information

I am Professor of Medicine within Lancaster Medical School and also Associate Dean for Engagement for the Faculty of Health and Medicine. I am also a medical doctor working in Paediatric Emergency Medicine and Public Health in Manchester.
