Summary

I am currently a lecturer in Nursing and Associated Programmes, having completed my doctoral studies in nursing at the University of Edinburgh. I was a Research Fellow at the Usher Institute, University of Edinburgh, working on a NIHR-funded national research on medication safety in primary care in England. I was part of the Equality, Diversity, and Inclusion committee, COVID-19 Research Committee, and Usher Network for COVID-19 Evidence Reviews (UNCOVER) at the University of Edinburgh and collaborated with nursing colleagues on a scoping review of the reach, influence, and impact of the global Nursing Now campaign.

I worked as a staff nurse for four years in various clinical settings in Malaysia while simultaneously tutoring undergraduate nursing students before embarking on postgraduate studies at King's College London in 2014. Upon completion of my Master's degree, I was promoted to a lecturing position at a Malaysian public university where I undertook research supervision of undergraduate students. Throughout my career in Malaysia, I have both the experience and knowledge of designing, delivering, assessing and evaluating nursing courses as I participated in curriculum reviews, constructed exam papers, marked exams and assignments, and supported undergraduate nursing students in both clinical and classroom learning.

As Associate Fellow of the UK Higher Education Academy (HEA), I have substantial knowledge of the UK higher education context and have experience of innovating Board of Studies processes for new and existing courses in line with my position as research assistant on an employability project at the School of History, Classics, and Archaeology at University of Edinburgh. I continue to develop my teaching expertise in my undertaking the Postgraduate Certificate of Academic Practice at the University of Hull.

I began my career here at the University of Hull in August 2021 and am hopeful to develop a dynamic career in both research and teaching in nursing and collaborating with multiple disciplines as I have in Edinburgh.
