Having a background in both community pharmacy and paediatric research, I joined the School of Pharmacy at Keele University in December 2013 as a Lecturer in Clinical Pharmacy.  I completed a PhD at the University of Birmingham in November 2013, which investigated barriers to administering oral medicines to children suffering from chronic conditions (http://etheses.bham.ac.uk/4799/). I work within the clinical team in the School of Pharmacy and teach a range of clinical therapeutic topics on the MPharm course. 

ISTM research theme: Sustainable Pharmacy

My research interests lie within the field of paediatrics and include: barriers to medicines adherence, acceptance of solid oral dosage forms, unlicensed/off-label medicines use and prescribing.
