Personal profile

Research interests

I am a Senior Research Fellow and Evidence Based Practice Professorial Unit Coordinator at the Centre for Research in Evidence-Based Practice at Bond University and have worked part-time in community pharmacy for over 10-years.

I hold a Bachelor of Pharmacy (First Class Honours), Graduate Certificate in Pharmacy Practice, and PhD from Monash University. My thesis, “A needs-based approach to patient-relevant information delivery”, focused on the delivery of evidence-based practice guidelines to clinicians in timely and patient-centred way. I am currently completing a Graduate Diploma in Data Science and have a strong interest in data wrangling, knowledge management during research and database achitecture, and data visualisation.

I have over 15 years of teaching experience in tertiary education institutions, university colleges, and privately. I am passionate about education and feel that it is my job not only teach the subject at hand, but to excite others in the process of learning; of wanting to know not only what, but more importantly how and why

Before moving to Bond, I held an Associate Lecture (Teaching Fellow) as the Academic Clinical Placements Coordinator for both Master and Bachelor of Pharmacy students at the University of Sydney, overseeing over 600 students and 400 placement sites. I have also developed several innovative inter-professional and simulation tutorials and workshops for nursing, medical, and pharmacy students, and was awarded an Education Innovation Grant to develop game software to teaches best possible medication history taking.

I am also the Gold Coast Skeptics President (www.gcskeptics.com). The Gold Coast Skeptics encourage thoughtful, rational exploration of the world around us. We are keen to promote scientific education and a sense of wonder in the natural world, as well as protect the public against potentially harmful shams, practices, policies and products through public education and working with regulatory bodies.


My teaching interests include:

  • Evidence-based practice and clinical research methods
  • Critical thinking and logic
  • Mathematics: basic calculus and statistics for health professionals


While I am interested in general clinical research methodology, my research interests include:

  • Clinician research engagement and development
  • Research waste
  • Pharmacoepidemiology and real-world data
  • Regulation of health products
  • Over prescribing
  • Pharmacy and pharmacy services
