I completed my MSc in Clinical Research at The University of Sheffield (ScHARR) in 2014 gaining a distinction. Prior to this I was a Registered General Nurse in the NHS working in Upper Gastro-Intestinal (GI) Surgery. Whilst nursing I completed an NIHR research internship in conjunction with Collaboration for Leadership in Applied Health Research and Care for South Yorkshire (CLAHRC-SY).

Following on from the internship I worked as a research assistant on a project ‘Examining the additional care needs of obese patients with leg ulcers’, in collaboration with researchers from both The University of Sheffield and Sheffield Hallam University; this was funded by the then CLAHRC-SY Obesity theme.
I joined ScHARR in 2014, initially in HEDS, as a research associate to work on the NIHR Vascular Services Programme Grant contributing to a range of research with the aim of evaluating vascular services and make recommendations regarding patient focused care.

In 2017 I commenced an additional post in Health Services Research as part of the Medical Care Research Unit working as a qualitative research associate on the ACtiF project. This will involve interviews with cystic fibrosis patients to evaluate the impact of an intervention that has been designed to improve adherence to nebuliser treatment.

Research Interests
