Summary

I am a leading international nurse academic with an extensive and sustained track record of high-quality research activity and leadership experience. I am currently Professor of Nursing and Health Research in the Faculty of Health Sciences, University of Hull, UK where I served as Head of Nursing for 3 years (2013-2016) and as Associate Dean (Research) for 4 years (2016-2020). I am the Editor-in Chief the Journal of Clinical Nursing (2021-present) and previously edited the Journal of Advanced Nursing (2013-2020). I hold Visiting Professor appointments at the University of Genoa, Italy (2016-present), Yangzhou University, China (2017- present) and Sri Ramachandra University, India (2019 –present). I held a Visiting Professor appointment at the Hong Kong Polytechnic University (2009-2015). I am a Fellow of the European Academy of Nursing Science, a Senior Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (UK), a Fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland (Faculty of Nursing), one of only 14 UK Fellows of the American Academy of Nursing, and am a 2021 inductee into the Sigma Theta Tau International Nurse Researcher Hall of Fame. I hold an NHS Honorary Professor of Clinical Research appointment

I have published 174 scholarly papers, have a Scopus h-index of 21, a Publons h-index of 21 a Google Scholar h-index of 34, and a Google Scholar i-10 index of 82 with 4,241 citations. I am an internationally recognised expert in qualitative research –my paper on sampling in qualitative studies has been cited 757 times. I have delivered >150 invited keynote addresses, conference papers, seminars, and masterclasses to national and international audiences. My YouTube presentation on writing qualitative papers has been viewed 27,498 times. Alongside substantial leadership activities I have been engaged in research grants and awards totalling £734,000 from a diverse and range of funders including the UK Medical Research Council (MRC), National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) and the UK National Health Service (NHS).

As Associate Dean for Research at Hull I led the Faculty’s REF 2021 process which included 4 Units of Assessment, developed and operationalised the Faculty’s research strategy, established the Faculty Research Office, developed the Faculty’s Research Mentoring programme and research grant peer review policy. Along with colleagues I secured NHS and charity funding to establish the Institute for Clinical and Applied Research within the Faculty of Health Sciences. As Head of Department of Nursing (2013 –2016) I led a department of 32 Academic staff with a departmental budget of circa £ 4.4M. I was responsible for developing staff, ensuring the provision of high-quality teaching and student experience and growing the research and scholarly profile of the department. Under my leadership there was an increase in research/scholarly outputs and an increase in staff undertaking PhD. In both Head and Associate Dean roles I gained extensive experience of working with NHS and other health providers, developing partnerships, and responding to workforce developments – in particular, developing supportive clinical placement experiences for students. I am also experienced in working with NHS partners to develop clinical staff into researchers through seminars, bespoke mentorship and a recently established NHS PhD cohort comprising 5 years supported study leave and fee support. I also serve on the UK National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) Clinical Doctorate Scholarship panel

I am an experienced PhD supervisor with 13 PhD completions including students from Thailand, Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Italy, and Nigeria. I have examined 23 PhDs nationally and internationally. I have extensive international nursing contacts and am highly experienced in working with international partners to develop research links, build collaborations and recruit PhD students. I have experience of developing and leading Under-Graduate and Post-Graduate programmes – including online international PGT programmes. I am an experienced teacher – particularly research methods, sexual health, gender and health, adolescent health and health care regulation – drawing upon my experience as NMC Fitness to Practise panel Member & panel Chair (2008-2014). At Sheffield University I served as the School of Nursing & Midwifery Head of PGT (2007-2010), Head of PGR (2010-2012) and led the School’s Prof. Doc. programme – the D.Med.Sci (2010-2012).
