Personal Statement

After gaining my PhD in rehabilitation engineering at the University of Glasgow, where I worked in conjunction with clinical colleagues at the Queen Elizabeth National Spinal Injuries Unit, I took a break from research to expand my personal training and education business:  I designed and delivered an International educational support and training programme for a commercial electrical stimulation product company.  I also expanded my personal training business to provide intensive restorative exercise therapy to individuals living with neurological mobility impairments. 

I joined the department of Biomedical Engineering in February 2013 to pursue my research interest in the field of restorative neurology.  I have just completed a project investigating the effects of transpinal electrical stimulation on central nervous system function on healthy individuals, and plan to extend this research to those who have suffered from a spinal cord injury. 

I contribute to teaching in the department and have recently become a fellow of the Higher Education Academy after gaining my postgraduate certificate in advanced academic studies.

My private training and therapy work continues part time, providing a fundamental, practical grounding for my research interests in the field of restorative neurology and exercise therapy.
