Biography

I am mental health nursing academic, a reader in mental health and a subject head. In addition, I am the founder and centre lead for the centre for collaborative innovation in dementia, an accredited health living lab - European Network of Living Labs (ENoLL). I continue to practice, research and publish within the mental health nursing field, my specific interests include living well with dementia, user-centric innovation (health), and mental health ethics. As a qualified and practicing leadership coach and mentor I have an interest in NLP and mindfulness.

As an educational professional I am a NMC teacher, a Senior Fellow of the Higher Education Academy, and a NMC reviewer (pre-registration mental health nursing programmes). I continue to maintain my clinical skills through my work with a local mental health NHS Trust and as a CQC specialist advisor. I also work with people living with dementia through my role as the lead for the centre in collaborative innovation in dementia. Since 2012 I have worked in partnership with both national and international partners on a number of research-to-innovation projects. As a methodological pragmatist I have used a number of research methodologies within a living lab context, participatory action research being the main methodological approach. At doctoral level I have an expertise in interpretative phenomenological analysis.

My teaching interests include; pre-registration mental health nursing; post-registration & post-graduate programmes (specifically mental health ethics; leadership ethics; personality disorders; dementia and descriptive psychopathology).
