    Personal Statement

    I graduated from the University of Salford in 1999 and worked clinically as a Diagnostic Radiographer for several years, taking active roles in Quality Assurance and clinical audit and specialising in Computed Tomography. I also gained a City and Guilds Further Education Certificate (7307) working with undergraduate radiography students.
    I completed a MSc in Immunology and Immunogenetics and a PhD in Neuroscience at the University of Manchester during which my research interests involved study of the neuroimmune link and the relevance of this in susceptibility to disease. Following this, I worked as a medical writer for two years, during which I gained much experience of academic writing for peer reviewed journals and congresses. I then returned to clinical practice and specialised in Computed Tomography before joining the team here at Liverpool.
    I have a keen interest in Widening Participation and Public Engagement and have taught with many educational charities over a number of years including Potential Plus and the Brilliant Club; I was given a ‘Volunteer of the Year’ award by the University of Manchester for this work during PhD study. I was also a Widening Participation Fellow, a tutor on the Manchester Access Programme and visited several public engagement events with ‘The Worm Wagon’ (deemed ‘highly commended’ at the University of Manchester Make a Difference awards). At the University of Liverpool I am joint lead for Widening Participation in the School of Allied Health Professions and Nursing.
