I joined DTS in ScHARR as a Research Associate in June 2017. Prior to this post I was funded by the University of Sheffield as a PhD student, which was also in DTS. My thesis is titled ‘An Investigation into the Factors which Influence Children with Asthma having Unscheduled Medical Contacts at the Start of the New School Year’ and is a mixed methods study. This is done under the supervision of Prof. Steven Julious and Prof. Wendy Baird. I started my PhD in Oct 2014.

Before joining the University of Sheffield, I completed an M.Sc. in Statistics (2013-2014) and a B.Sc. in Mathematics with Statistics (2010-2013) both at Lancaster University.
