I joined ScHARR in early 2021 as an Honorary Research Fellow. I am the Head of Research of Yorkshire Ambulance Service NHS Trust (YAS) and have developed a formal academic partnership between ScHARR and YAS. This has resulted in a shared Memorandum of Understanding which aims to encourage research that drives service needs-driven and applied research.

I have worked on a number of NIHR-funded CURE projects, including pre-hospital Pandemic Respiratory Infection Emergency System Triage – pre-PRIEST led by Professor Steve Goodacre; Pre-alerts study led by Dr Fiona Sampson); the Major Trauma Triage Study (MATTS) project led by Dr Gordon Fuller; and the Risk of Adverse Outcomes after a Suspected Seizure (RADOSS) study.

I am also involved in the Yorkshire and Humber Applied Research Collaborative under the urgent care theme and attend the National Ambulance Research Steering Group (NARSG).
