I am an HCPC-registered Occupational Therapist currently undertaking a part-time PhD, using a Participatory Action Research approach to explore more accessible and inclusive ways of evaluating disabled people's participation in sport and physical activity. I am also a part-time Lecturer in the School of Occupational Therapy, working 1.5 days per week. I am particularly interested in occupational in/justice and how Occupational Therapists can work with marginalised groups to address inequalities in access to occupations, particularly through collaborative research approaches. I am also Secretary for the Eastern Region Royal College of Occupational Therapists.
