I am the Programme Manager for the BSc (Hons) Health and Social Care Top-Up Degree at the University of Sunderland in London. I am responsible for the effective development and delivery of educational activities in the Health and Social Care department, including teaching and related research and external engagement activities.  My duties include delivering consistently in conjunction with Faculty stakeholders and Institutional policies. 

I have industry experience and academic background in Health Promotion, Public Health, Community Development, Migration and Psychoanalysis, especially the ability to cope after adversity or trauma.

My research interests lie particularly in health, wellbeing and resilience. I am researching on the ability of the individual to cope after adversity or experiencing trauma.

I am a professional member of the British Association for Behavioural & Cognitive Psychotherapies and also hold a QTLS from SET.
