Personal profile


I am an Associate Professor of Physiotherapy and Director of the Doctor of Physiotherapy Program (DPT) at Macquarie University. I have over 20 years of experience as a physiotherapist, and 9 years of teaching experience. I have won numerous awards for my teaching excellence and am a Senior Fellow of the Higher Education Academy. During my years at Macquarie University I have been involved with the design, development and implementation of high quality, innovative curriculum and assessment in a student-centred manner across all years of the DPT. I also have an integral knowledge of the requirements for accreditation of a physiotherapy program in Australia, having successfully led the re-accreditation process for the MQ DPT in 2019. Within the profession I am a current member of the Australian Physiotherapy Association, and also of the Council of Physiotherapy Deans of Australia and New Zealand (CPDANZ) where I work collaboratively with other members, contributing to a community of practice that serves to raise the quality of the profession. I am currently Chair of the Macquarie University Academic Standards and Quality Committee, as well as being a member of the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences Board, Faculty Education Committee and Faculty Discipline Committee. I have 20 peer reviewed publications, 16 commissioned corporate reports and my research has attracted over $240,000 in funds, in addition to being an Associate Investigator on a NHMRC trial titled “Tailored intervention for reducing falls after stroke trial (FAST)” commencing in 2019, which was granted over $1.8 million. I have many industry partners and am an invited speaker at both national and international conferences within my area of expertise: chronic disease prevention and management, physical activity, and supporting behaviour change and self-management.
