As a paramedic with 11 years of experience, I have been working as Senior Lecturer in Emergency Care at Arcada for 3 years. From February 2019 on, I am Degree Programme Director for Emergency Care Programme.
Graduating in 2007, I have a dual Bachelor's Degree in Paramedic and Nursing (Arcada University of Applied Sciences). My Master's Thesis (Master of Healthcare; Arcada University of Applied Sciences) had a basis on resilience engineering and the purpose of the thesis was to study the situation awareness of EMS personnel in a simulated environment using Situation Awareness Global Assessment Technique and camera recordings. The title of the thesis is "Why Do We Succeed in EMS".
I am also studying MSc Degree in Applied Psychology at Robert Gordon University in Aberdeen with intentions to graduate in December 2019.
My main interests at the moment is in a stronger bonding of psychological viewpoints in learning as well as studying human factors within real-life clinical and simulation settings. Finding new ways to teach and learn has also become of personal interest.
