I joined Warwick Medical School in 2004 and have gained extensive experience in primary care research from the recruitment of study sites and participants, day-to-day trial management and intervention delivery, through to the evaluation and dissemination of results. I have experience in a range of research methods including: RCTs of complex interventions, observational studies, online surveys, systematic reviews, interviews and focus groups.
I completed my PhD in 2013 in collaboration with the Warwick Manufacturing Group; a mixed methods study exploring the relationship between the built environment and depressive symptoms of older people living in care homes.
I currently work as a Senior Research Fellow on a NIHR programme grant evaluating a self-management intervention for chronic headache and a NIHR HS&DR study evaluating an intervention to reduce antimicrobial prescribing in care homes. I supervise PhD students at WMS, and I am a supervisor for the West Midlands Clinical Academic Internship Programme.
