I am Research Associate working within the Sheffield Alcohol Research Group at ScHARR - working predominantly on the evaluation of the Scottish Minimum Unit Pricing for Alcohol. In addition, also in the field of addiction research, I am currently involved with the TIME study – A take-home naloxone intervention multicentre emergency setting feasibility trial. Previously, within ScHARR I also worked on:

  • NIHR funded - The Design, Development, Commissioning and Evaluation of Patient Focused Vascular Services study - (HEDS).
  • Cancer, Fertility and Me study - developing and evaluating a decision aid for women diagnosed with cancer considering fertility preservation (HEDS).

Before joining ScHARR I was a Clinical Data Manager at the Sheffield University Cancer Clinical Trials Unit – working on a variety of cancer drug clinical trials. I completed my MPH in health research at Sheffield University in 2012. I have also worked as a field researcher for the National Centre for Social Research as well as Breakthrough Breast Cancer.

Research interests

I am primarily interested in qualitative and ethnographic research methodologies.  My research interests lie in shared decision making and the evaluation of public health services within the context of the lived patient experience.  I am particularly interested in the role of PPI in producing innovative and meaningful research.
