I joined the University of Sheffield after working for the Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust as a junior Doctor. I originally studied Psychology at the University of Wales, Swansea, and worked for many years as a Research Psychologist, mainly at the Institute of Psychiatry, Kings College, London.

In 2008 I gained a place on the graduate Medicine course at St Georges, University of London, graduating in 2012, and spending the next few years working as a Doctor at various Hospitals around the UK.

In a recent break from clinical work I took on the post of Clinical Trials Monitor at Leeds University.

I joined the CTRU to work as the Trial Manager for the ACUTE Trial (Ambulance CPAP: Use, Treatment effect and Economics) feasibility study, funded by the HTA (15/08/40).

Current Projects

  • The ACUTE (Ambulance CPAP: Use, Treatment effect and economics) feasibility study: a pilot randomised controlled trial of prehospital CPAP for acute respiratory failure
  • MATTS: Major Trauma Triage Tool Study
