I joined ScHARR (HEDS) as a Research Associate in October 2016. In my previous role, I worked as a Research Assistant at the University of Leeds. My research interests include evaluation of health systems, economic evaluation of complex health interventions, mental health, and mixed-methods research.

Current project

I am working on a NIHR project called “The design, development, commissioning and evaluation of patient focused vascular services”.
