Biography

I started the role Training Facilitator, Clinical Research in September 2021.

I have worked in the Research and Innovation team since March 2020, working with the Research Policy and Strategy and Impact Support teams as a REF (Research Excellence Framework) Support Officer and more recently Engagement team in the Postgraduate School. 

Previously (2017-2021), I was the Researcher on the project: Assessing the impacts on people and communities following the December 2015/January 2016 flood events. 

My PhD (awarded in 2016) in Human Geography and Human Computer Interaction, involved designing technology for largely housebound older adults living in rural areas, to improve opportunities for engagement with activities in the local community. Within the time of this project, I assisted with a short-term project with school-children to develop ideas for technology (called 'Bodbot') to assist with diet and nutrition research.

Prior to this, I completed my MSc in International Health and Management, which led to a short voluntary project exploring the use of private and public health care facilities (maternal health) in rural areas of Nepal and worked as a Research Assistant in the Epidemiology Group. My undergraduate degree is in Sociology.
