Biography

I am a HCPC registered physiotherapist with a BSc in physiotherapy, MSc in exercise physiology, and currently doing a PhD in cardiopulmonary rehabilitation. I worked for four years internationally as a lecturer before joining Keele in 2017 for the PhD.
Beside teaching, I am interested in cardiopulmonary rehabilitation research, sleep research, neurodegenerative diseases including Parkinson's and Multiple Sclerosis, and older adults health.

I do both, qualitative and quantitative studies in the UK and internationally. I have got recognised awards and scholarships, including the European Committee for Treatment and Research in Multiple Sclerosis (ECTRIMS), Middle East and North Arica Committee for Treatment and Research in Multiple Sclerosis (MENACTRIMS), MSc scholarship and my current PhD scholarship.
