I am a Senior Lecturer in the Department of Life Sciences. My background is in botany, plant physiology and herbal medicine. I have over 30 years experience as a practitioner of western herbal medicine in the community, including consultancy for the health charity Wellwomen Information.
I coordinated a clinical trial investigating herbal treatment of the menopause in collaboration with the University of Central Lancashire and local health authority, and advised the longitudinal study ALSPAC about complementary health research. I act as expert external adviser to the data monitoring and ethics committee of a clinical trial.
Since joining the University of Westminster in 2011, I have been course leader for the MSc Herbal Medicine, module leader for level 5 core pathophysiology, supervised undergraduate, postgraduate and PhD students, and taught across a range of modules from level 3-7.
