Curie joined CEL in 2017 as the Programme lead for the Postgraduate Certificate in Education. She is an international fellow of the England Centre for Practice Development, has won numerous awards one of which enabled her to live in Brazil for a month to view nursing practice; and has presented at conferences nationally and internationally. Before coming to BU, she taught health professional students for 15 years at undergraduate and postgraduate level, and worked as a medical doctor. She also practices as a painter and origami artist.
