Personal profile

Research interests

I am an Intensive Care Nurse, Health Professions Educator and Science Communicator.   My research explores the impacts of workforce policy, health practitioner preparedness and development, and science communication. My research expertise includes scoping and systematic reviews, mixed methods research design, semi-structured interviews, survey methods, including the Delphi method, and eye tracking to explore attention.

I am an experienced teacher and educator, in undergraduate and post-graduate settings, using interactive methods to achieve optimal learning outcomes. Specifically, I utilise technology and tactile strategies to engage learners, embodying a reciprocal and constructivist learning philosophy.

I am a sought-after speaker - I have delivered over 60 presentations and workshops, including Keynote Speaking Invitations and Masterclasses on nursing, simulation based education, social media as a health professional, and science communication. I love storytelling and reimagining evidence in ways that are easy to access and understand - I achieve this through my use of social media.  You can see this on Instagram, Twitter and TikTok.

Outside of this, I have worked with multiple Not-for-profit organisations in advisory and Chair capacities - to advise on Diversity and Inclusion (D&I) issues, lead teams to deliver key outcomes related to D&I and lead communication strategies. 

My research focuses on the following areas:

  • Health Professions Education
    • Simulated Participant Methodology 
    • ECG teaching strategies
    • Moulage in simulation 
  • Gender Equity in Healthcare
    • Simulation design and influence on equity 
    • Perceptions of equity among heath professionals
  • Science Communcations
    • Health professions expertise and training
    • Communication design 

Current Projects:

  • Authentic moulage in simulated participants
  • Science Communication for consumer education
  • Simulation Workforce: Diversity in the simulation workforce population
  • Nurses as angels and heroes
  • Simulated Participant program benchmarks 

Statement for HDR students

I am an engaged and approachable supervisor & am available to supervise HDR or honours students in projects specifically related to:

  • health professions education (such as simulation, technology, nursing)
  • science communications (including social media for health professionals)
  • moulage techniques in health professions education 
  • The angels and heroes narrative during the COVID-19 pandemic 

I have mixed-methods research expertise, with a particular expertise in eye-tracking methodology, delphi methods, systematic and scoping reviews, stimulated recall interview methods, surveys and other qualitative methods.
