I joined ScHARR as a systematic reviewer in January 2011 after completing my BSc and PhD in Psychology at the University of Sheffield in developmental psychology. I work as part of the evidence review group, ScHARR-TAG, on projects in areas including mental health, oncology and diagnostics. I also design and lead research in systematic review projects of mapping reviews and complex interventions.
- Methodology of systematic reviews and primary research
- Treatment for mental health disorders
- Infant and child development
Within ScHARR I am co-chair for the Systematic Reviewers Academic Development Group (SRADG) and a member of the Equality and Diversity Steering Group. I supervise masters students and teach on modules across the Faculty of Medicine, Dentistry and Health on systematic reviews. I work collaboratively with a number of institutions including the University of Warwick and the University of Oxford, and the National Institute for Health Care Excellence (NICE).
