I joined ScHARR in June 2017. Prior to starting in ScHARR, I was funded by the University of Sheffield as a Ph.D. student. My thesis was titled ‘An Investigation into the Factors which Influence Children with Asthma having Unscheduled Medical Contacts at the Start of the New School Year’ and it was a mixed methods study.

Before joining the University of Sheffield, I completed an M.Sc. in Statistics (2013-2014) and a B.Sc. in Mathematics with Statistics (2010-2013) both at Lancaster University
