Bio: My interests in medical education include improving mental health awareness among students and medical school staff and widening access to medicine - specifically the cost to students of engaging with research and its impact on an academic career. I hope to promote ASME to students in younger years, to ensure that JASME/ASME is able to fulfil its full potential in engaging future medical educators.

I remain a part of the events team for Medisense, where I help with events promoting peer teaching and learning and promoting widening access to medicine and before joining the JASME committee I spent 2 years as the JASME regional representative for Newcastle which was a fantastic opportunity.
