General

I joined Pharmacy at Aston in February 2012, having spent the previous 25 years as a practicing pharmacist. I have worked within community, industry, acute hospital and particularly within old age and adult psychiatry where I worked for 18 years; with 9 years at a senior level. 

I am an experienced researcher, manager and clinician with a broad research background including working within multi-disciplinary international teams. I am experienced in aspects of management including strategic planning, knowledge management, team development, change management and administration, from both a public sector and commercial environment.

I have taught and developed teaching material for a variety of undergraduate and postgraduate courses. In particular I have developed a Psychopharmacology course for non-medical prescribers and educational material for the College for Postgraduate Pharmacy Educatio
