I joined the university Management School in 2009 following a ten year career with GlaxoSmithKine at the interface of research & development and international production of Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients (API). In 2012 I moved to the School of Health and Related Research (ScHARR) supporting public health research and more recently co-ordinating the Recovering Quality of Life (ReQoL) study.

I joined the CTRU in April 2016 as Trial Manager for the E-SEE trial (Enhancing Emotional and Social Wellbeing in the Early Years) funded by the National Institute for Health Research Public Health Research (NIHR PR 13/93/10).
