I have been working in the field of health research since 2001, and during this time I have qualified as a Speech and Language Therapist and completed my PhD thesis which explored the experience of participation in stroke survivors.

My particular research expertise is in qualitative methodologies, although I enjoy working within a mixed methods approach. I am interested in improving the experience of people living with long term illness and disability, and in inclusivity in research.

Current Research Projects:

  • STAR – computer-based articulation therapy using apps for tablet computers, which patients can use to administer their own therapy.
