I am based at Glasgow Caledonian University, Scotland, UK and am an established Lecturer, Researcher and Chartered Physiotherapist with a specialised interest in pain science, vascular disease, amputee management and the psychosocial aspects of health and disease. My principal research interests lie in the field of physiotherapy management of chronic pain and exercise as a treatment for cardiovascular disease and disorders. I am currently investigating the effects of Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS) on pain and function in patients with Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD) and Intermittent Claudication (IC). My future research plans are to further examine and improve the management of painful conditions, including PAD and IC. I have particular expertise and interest in low-cost, non-invasive, client-centred interventions for pain relief and the effects on function, quality of life and the psychosocial aspects of chronic pain conditions.
