I am a lecturer in International Health Services Research at a London university where I teach doctors, nurses and other health professionals at postgraduate level. I regularly present at conferences in the UK and internationally, and complete research and training within the area of sex and relationships health. I have a BA in Social Psychology (Sussex University), and a PhD is in Applied Human Psychology (Aston University). My PhD focused on the effects of sexually explicit material. I have lectured at a number of UK universities, specialising in evidence based healthcare, and understanding research methodologies (both qualitative and quantitative). My research has covered topics within the area of sexual health, including the effects of pornography, women involved in street prostitution, policy and practice in sex education, evaluating advice giving in the media, sexual functioning, and modernising sexual health services.
