Research Interests

My research interests are primarily around educational technology and digital technologies in resource poor settings. My research activities include the use of virtual patients to support clinical decision making. I have significant experience working in Malawi and Tanzania as part of the ETATMBA project funded by the European Commission, enhancing the training and professionalisation of clinical officers.


I am a Professor at the University of Warwick Medical School in the UK. My main responsibility in the department is course director of BSc Health and Medical Sciences. I am also Deputy Chair of the Faculty of Science, Engineering & Medicine. I currently supervise PhD research students in the fields of technology enhanced learning including online learning interventions, simulation including virtual patients, and global health education. I also supervise a number of MMedEd dissertation students on a diverse range of clinical education topics. I have a strong interest in global health education and have worked in Malawi and Tanzania to develop and lead a training course on leadership, service improvement, and values based practice for clinical officers in maternal and child health.
