Biography

I began working at the University of Sheffield in September 2013 as a University Teacher in Health Services Research. Currently I work as the deputy course director for the MSc Advanced Emergency Care and contribute to the teaching on this course and other MSc courses in ScHARR. In October 2015, I took on the additional role of research associate within ScHARR and am working part-time on completing my PhD. My PhD is a NIHR Collaboration for Leadership in Applied Health Research and Care (CLAHRC) funded project that is looking at Migrants’ use of emergency services in England.

Prior to starting at the University of Sheffield I worked as a research manager for a non-governmental organisation in South Africa. I completed my MPH at The University of Cape Town (UCT), South Africa and subsequently worked on numerous research projects as a research assistant at UCT. The dissertation I completed as part of my MPH explored the utilization of healthcare services by children with Foetal Alcohol Syndrome in the Western Cape, South Africa. During my time at the University of Cape Town I was also involved in teaching of the MPH, particularly quantitative research methods.
