I am currently employed as trial manager for the DAFNEplus randomised controlled trial. The trial is part of a programme funded by the NIHR, Programme Grants for Applied Research (RP-PG-0514-20013). I joined The University of Sheffield in 2012 as a trial manager in Public Health, then evaluation study manager in the Rehabilitation and Assistive Technology group of the Health Services Research Section. Before joining ScHARR I was employed as a research physiotherapist and project coordinator by Muscular Dystrophy UK working in close collaboration with a national clinical network of NHS paediatric neuromuscular centres on projects to standardise clinical assessments and to develop clinical databases. Clinical and academic leadership was from the Dubowitz Neuromuscular Centre. As part of this post I was seconded as UK Implementation Officer to the TREAT-NMD Project - an EU Funded Network of Excellence. Prior to that I was employed as a physiotherapist in the NHS, specialising in the management of adults and children with long-term neurological disability. I was awarded my MPhil, which investigated the effects of functional electrical stimulation in ambulant individuals with spinal cord injury, by Sheffield Hallam University.
