I joined ScHARR (HEDS) as a Research Associate to work on the NIHR Vascular Services Programme Grant having completed an MSc at The University of Sheffield (ScHARR) in 2014.

Prior to this I was a Registered Nurse in the National Health Service (NHS) working in Upper Gastro-Intestinal (GI) Surgery. I also completed an NIHR research internship in conjunction with Collaboration for Leadership in Applied Health Research and Care for South Yorkshire (CLAHRC-SY) and collaborated with researchers from The University of Sheffield and Sheffield Hallam University.

Research Interests

I have a wide range of academic research interests spanning health; I am generally interested in obesity, patient experience and quality of life.

Current Projects

I am currently involved in the NIHR Research Programme funded study to evaluate vascular services and make recommendations regarding patient focused care.
