Originally a mechanical engineer, I have seven years’ experience as a registered Mental Health Nurse, most recently working in NHS community services. In 2016 I was awarded an NIHR studentship to complete an MA in Research Methods at the University of Nottingham, and I joined the Clinical Trials Research Unit in December 2017 as a Research Assistant. I now work as Study Manager on the COMMEND trial.
