I joined the Clinical Trials Research Unit in 2009. I currently assist investigators in the design and costing of clinical research and oversee the CTRU’s involvement in funded studies. I also have joint oversight of the Quality Assurance activities for the Unit.

Before joining the University I worked at the University of Oxford supporting clinical trials in the Department of Primary Care.
