Profile

I have been working in the field of health services research since 2010. I first joined the University of Sheffield in 2014 as a Research Assistant in the School of Health and Related Research (ScHARR). Whilst in this role I was awarded a Stroke Association Postgraduate Fellowship and completed my PhD evaluating the intervention fidelity of self-managed computer therapy for aphasia post-stroke.

I joined the Division of Nursing and Midwifery in 2020 as a Research Associate to work on a study exploring the role of Mesothelioma UK clinical nurse specialists in meeting the palliative care needs of patients and families.

Research interests

My research interests centre on working with patients, carers and healthcare providers in order to understand their experiences of engaging with healthcare services and health technology, with the ultimate goal of improving service delivery. Methodologically, my interest and experience is in qualitative and mixed methods research.

Previous projects include:

  • A process evaluation of intervention fidelity to self-managed computer aphasia therapy
  • A randomised controlled trial exploring whether self-managed computer therapy can help people with post-stroke aphasia find more words (Big CACTUS)
  • A qualitative study exploring patient, carer and health care professional’s experience of stroke care across South Yorkshire
  • A qualitative study exploring patient and public involvement in stroke research

Current research projects:

  • A mixed methods study exploring the role of Mesothelioma UK clinical nurse specialists in meeting the palliative care needs of patients and families
