I have a Bachelor Degree in Dentistry and an MSc in Dental Public Health. I have gained experience in research engaging health service users, health and higher education personnel; experience in teaching, supervision and facilitation; experience in working in higher education and I am an Associate Fellow at the Higher Education Academy. Currently, I am completing my PhD in Medical Sociology at Brunel University London. I have a particular interest in tobacco control, oral health, inequalities in health and e-cigarettes. I am also interested in doing more qualitative and quantitative research on e-cigarette use.
