I joined ScHARR as a Research Associate in 2014 having completed an MSc in Clinical Research at The University of Sheffield.

Prior to this, I was a Registered Nurse in the National Health Service (NHS) working in Upper Gastro-Intestinal (GI) Surgery. I also completed an NIHR research internship in conjunction with Collaboration for Leadership in Applied Health Research and Care for South Yorkshire (CLAHRC-SY) and collaborated with researchers from The University of Sheffield and Sheffield Hallam University.

I am currently working as a qualitative researcher on the NIHR funded RCT STOP-OHSS - Shaping an Trialling Outpatient Protocols for Ovarian Hyperstimulation Syndrome, in addition to working on the Wakefield District Housing Support Evaluation Project (WHoSE).

I have previously worked as a qualitative researcher on the NIHR Vascular Services Programme Grant and on an NIHR funded research programme grant - ACtiF - Development and evaluation of an intervention to support Adherence to nebuliser treatment in adults with Cystic Fibrosis.
