With six years experience in clinical trial management at the Sheffield CTRU, I have worked collaboratively with the Universities of Leeds and York, primary and secondary schools, and NHS Trusts nationally to deliver multicentre randomised controlled trials.  I am currently the Trial Manager for the HELP Fertility trial.

I joined the University of Sheffield in 2009 (Management School) following a ten-year career in pharmaceuticals 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 in the areas of mental health (ReQoL) and infant care research (NoSH).
