I graduated from the University of Sheffield in 1992. After working in General Dental Practice, I began part time teaching at the University in 1995 initially in Oral Surgery and then Restorative Dentistry and I became a full time Clinical Lecturer in Restorative Dentistry in 2001.

I went on to complete my PhD in novel dental ceramics in 2008 and specialist training in 2013 and I am on the GDC specialist list in Restorative Dentistry, Prosthodontics, Periodontics and Endodontics.

Currently, I am a Senior Clinical Teacher and Honorary Consultant in Restorative Dentistry at the University of Sheffield. I am Undergraduate Lead for Learning and Teaching in Periodontology, Lead for a number of Prosthodontic clinical skills courses and Director of Student Affairs. My research areas involve pedagogical and clinical trial work.
