Teaching interests

I am currently qualification director for Health Sciences and module chair of SK298: Brain, mind and mental health. I have previously been module chair of SDK228: Science of the mind: investigating mental health and SD226: Biological psychology.

I have written and produced teaching materials on dementia (for SK298 and SDK228); the science of olfaction (for SD329: Signals and perception: the science of the senses) and personalised medicine (for S201: Science and Society). I am currently producing teaching materials for a new module in Translational Medicine. 

I have been an associate lecturer on many modules in the biological and health sciences, including SDK228, SD226, SD329 and S827:Concept to clinic.
