Dr Grace Linsley & Dr Peter Roberts

Dr Grace Linsley, nee Parfitt, is a senior lecturer in podiatry at the University of Huddersfield. She teaches across the podiatry curriculum and leads on areas such as podiatric pathologies, musculoskeletal assessment, and clinical skills. She has been instrumental in developing placement provision for podiatry students across both undergraduate and post-graduate courses.

An ongoing project of Grace’s is to widen the scope of placement experience by offering exposure to the world of private practice. Grace’s research interests are varied and contemporary. Her PhD examined the management of painful plantar corns and she has a developing post-doctoral interest in all elements of wound care and infection prevention. She was recently made an editor of the Diabetic Foot Journal. Grace has her own private practice alongside her teaching role and is an active member of clinical provision at the University clinic.

Dr Peter Roberts is a senior lecturer in podiatry and course leader to undergraduate podiatry programmes at the University of Huddersfield. Peter teaches widely across the curriculum with particular lead areas for undergraduate research and the podiatric implications of long-term medical conditions. His PhD explored the role of podiatry in the early identification and prevention of lower limb venous disease.

Peter has a keen interest in all aspects of teaching and learning. He is currently engaged in two pedagogic research projects, one concerning inter-professional learning and a second exploring the formation of learning relationships. Peter worked in the NHS in high risk and general podiatry and is an active member of clinical teaching and provision at the University clinic.
