Projects per year
My research career began with a PhD in respiratory drug delivery, but I have also worked as a hospital pharmacist, so now I carry out research in two distinct fields.
Firstly, I am interested in medicines information and medicines safety, and particularly the links between them. Patients and health professionals require information to enable them to use medicines safely, effectively and efficiently. My research aims to find the best ways to provide this information and advice, whether this is via written guidelines, dedicated Medicines Information services, the work of other pharmacists or digital technologies. I am particularly investigating medication errors that are related to difficulting finding and understanding information in clinical guidelines, and techniques can be used to improve the design of guidelines to prevent this from happening.
Secondly, I continue to work in respiratory drug delivery. A lot of my work has focused on understanding the surface properties of drug particles and inhalers, how they interact with each other and how this influences drug delivery. I continue to work in this area but am also developing research into novel technologies for the formulation of inhaled antibiotics for new indications. Finally, I am also interested in the usability of inhaler devices, especially for special patient groups.
Willing to supervise doctoral students
I have a number of current PhD students and I am always interested to hear from potential students to join our research group and carry out research in any area of medicines information, medicines safety or inhaled drug administration.
I am involved in teaching a wide range of pharmacy practice topics, especially evidence-based practice and unlicensed medicines. In addition, I convene a second year MPharm Specialised Integrarted Unit on Respiratory Diseases and Dermatology, on which I teach respiratory drug delivery and the pharmaceutics of inhalers.
