About

I’m the Clinical Education Coordinator for Speech Pathology at JCU and also teach into second and third year subjects.

I coordinate and teach into the following subjects:  SL2011 - Speech Pathology Processes A;  SL2012 - Speech Pathology Processes B;  SL3002 - Swallowing Disabilities Across the Lifespan.  I also teach into various other subjects as appropriate.  As Clinical Education Coordinator I arrange and oversee all of the 2nd, 3rd and 4th year clinical subjects and assign students to suitable placements, both internally on campus at the Clinical Practice Building, and externally within schools, clinics, hospitals, NGOs and private practices throughout QLD, and potentially other regions throughout Australia and overseas.

My research interests include dysphagia, videofluoroscopic evaluatuion of swallowing, and also the ethics of feeding and swallowing at the end of life.  Recent research has focused on modified viscosity to increase the safety of swallowing in dysphagia.
