Biography

I joined the University of Sheffield in 2013 as a research assistant in the Clinical Trials Research Unit working on the PLEASANT trial and assisting on the Healthlines study. I am currently the study manager for the MERIDIAN study which includes the MERIDIAN Add-on and MERIDIAN 2-3 year follow up study.

Prior to joining the University I worked on a health promotion programme within Rotherham NHS Maternity Service. I have also done voluntary work on a number of weight management programmes, which involved carrying out health assessments and delivering nutrition and lifestyle advice.
