Biography

I am currently working as a research fellow under Dr. Katie Gillies, Director of the Healthcare Assessment Programme within HSRU, to work on the NIHR funded I-TRAC study (In-home Tracking of glaucoma: Reliability, Acceptability, and Cost). More information on this study can be found here: I-TRAC (itracstudy.co.uk) 

My research is focused around older adults’ health. My early research surrounded pain management and my PhD thesis focused on developing a better understanding of the concept older adults' pain self-management. I have since explored pain management in acute care settings, and developed new interests and experience in different methodologies in the fields of dementia, stroke and anti-cholinergic burden. I have experience in qualitative interviewing, quantitative surveys, systematic reviews, clinical trials, and devleoping feasibility studies.  

I lead on the ACER PPI group, developed in 2019, to promote the engagement of older people and their carers with older peoples research.
