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 on older peoples' 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 developing 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.

Knowledge Exchange

I lead on the ACER PPI group, developed in 2019, to promote the engagement of older people and their carers with older peoples research. More information on our PPI group can be found here: https://www.abdn.ac.uk/iahs/research/acer/acer-ppi-group-members-1972.php

We have also spent extensive time co-developing patient facing materials with our PPI group, to promote awareness of anticholinergic medications and what patients can do if they have any concerns about their medications: https://www.abdn.ac.uk/iahs/research/acer/anticholinergic-medications-1984.php
