I joined the Information Resources Group, HEDS in April 2015 and my role is currently focused on information retrieval for systematic reviews.

After completing an MSc in Information Management at the University of Sheffield’s iSchool, I specialised as an academic liaison librarian supporting nursing and allied health; originally at the School of Nursing and Midwifery, before moving on to Sheffield Hallam University and the University of Leeds. In 2012 I completed a teaching qualification leading to accreditation as an Associate of the Higher Education Academy.

I enjoy teaching and my role at ScHARR allows me to continue this alongside a greater involvement in research.
