Prior to joining the School of Health and Social Care, I worked as a Research Associate for six and a half years at the Centre for Research in Social Policy at Loughborough University. I have nine years’ experience of undertaking applied research across a range of public policy areas, such as social policy, community safety and housing, for public and voluntary sector evaluations. I have a range of quantitative and qualitative research skills, as well as extensive experience of undertaking literature reviews and publishing for a range of audiences, including peer-reviewed journals and policy practitioners.
I joined the School of Health and Social Care as a Research Assistant in September 2011. I am currently undertaking systematic literature reviews in a project entitled ‘Pre-hospital Outcomes for Evidence-Based Evaluation (PHOEBE). I am also involved in the Improving Primary Care Resources for Effective Sleep Treatment (IPCREST) project, which explores new ways of treating insomnia and the Ambulance Service Cardiovascular Quality Initiative (ASCQI) project, which looks at quality improvement in the treatment of heart attacks and strokes. In addition to this, I am currently involved in the editorial process for the journal, Quality in Primary Care.
