University of Strathclyde

Supervisor – Dr Andrew Kerr

Interest area – Stroke Rehabilitation

Working project title – “Observable gait patterns in acute post-Stroke as indicators of future rehabilitation potential.”

Bio – I graduated from the University of Strathclyde in 2013 with a BSc(Hons) in Prosthetics and Orthotics. Since graduating I have worked with Peacocks Medical Group as an Orthotist, first on the south coast and more recently in West Yorkshire. Clinical involvement and interaction with the service users is of great importance to me and I try my best to keep the user at the centre of all I do. Alongside my own research I have been involved in helping to facilitate the running of the new Strathclyde Stroke Rehabilitation gym which has been quite a success so far.

Outside of Uni I enjoy a range of activities including sewing, costume making (cosplay), hiking, camping and musical theatre. I am very much enjoying the local dry ski slope in Glasgow and being a member of the Strathclyde ski society has helped me add (very beginner) snowboarding to my activity list.
