I initially joined the School of Life and Health Sciences as an Academic Support Officer in Pharmacy Practice in December 2007. Upon completion of my PhD (August 2008), I was transferred to a Lectureship in Pharmacy Practice before being promoted to Senior Lecturer in August 2013.

I graduated (MPharm) from Aston in 2002 and undertook my pre-registration year in a Birmingham-based independent pharmacy chain. Post-registration I have been a locum community pharmacist as well as completing my PhD at Aston under the supervision of Dr (now Professor) Chris Langley.
