School of Allied Health Sciences

Chris is a Senior Lecturer and Course Lead for the diagnostic radiography degree in the School of Allied Health Sciences.  He has extensive experience as a clinical radiographer, manager of a radiology academy, and as a university lecturer.  

Chris has been involved in the development of several curricula at both undergraduate and post graduate level.  His most significant contribution has been in the development of the undergraduate radiography programmes.  Chris has introduced and developed several modules written for the latest revalidated programme. These include physical science based subjects such as radiological physics which health degree students often find particularly challenging. 

Chris continues to teach across the East Anglian region on radiology, radiography and radiation safety to dentists at conferences and study days during which he is able to promote the work of the University. 

Chris' research interests are focused on trauma and dental radiography.  In his current role, he supervises several undergraduate radiography students each year.
