I joined the School of Health and Related Research (ScHARR) as a researcher in 2010 following completion of a NIHR fellowship MSC in Clinical Research.  I am a Health and Care Professions Council registered Occupational Therapist (OT) with 19 years’ experience.  I specialised in Stroke rehabilitation in 2001 and worked in this role with Sheffield Teaching Hospitals until 2016. I have a BSc in Occupational Therapy from the University of Wales College of Medicine and BSc in Geography from Aberystwyth University.

Within my research post I am evaluating the Perfect Patient Pathway Test Bed Programme.  I also contribute to the Collaboration Aiming to Build Occupational Therapy Research (CABOT) programme of work, notably the older people and sight loss and ‘Virtual Visit app’ projects.

As a Research Associate I have worked on the following projects:

  • Internal evaluation team of the CLAHRC-SY
  • Evaluation of the Doncaster Cancer Survivorship Programme
  • The CLAHRC-SY Patient Experience of Transient Ischaemic Attacks study
  • Curriculum Development of the ScHARR MSc in Clinical Research
