My personal pronouns are she/her.
I’m a Research Fellow at the Health Services Research Unit at the University of Aberdeen. I’m currently working exclusively in Trial Methodology (yay!) with Professor Shaun Treweek, mainly contributing to Trial Forge that aims to be more systematic about how we generate and use research evidence in making trial design, conduct, analysis and reporting decisions.
During my time in HSRU I’ve worked across a range of projects (e.g. ESP2, RECAP, PREP-AIR, ActWELL/ActWELL study, PoINT, Improved Data for Improved Outcomes Project). Prior to joining HSRU, I worked on a variety of Health Services Research projects at the University of Aberdeen (PIPPC, EMMA, eTHoS, UKUFF, MUNROS). using both quantitative and qualitative methods.
I’m working part-time between HSRU, University of Aberdeen, UK and HRB Clinical Research Facility University College Cork, Ireland and I’m a HRB-TMRN Research Associate.
I graduated from the University of Aberdeen with a MA (Hons) in Psychology in 2001 and completed a PhD in Psychology, also from the University of Aberdeen, in 2008.
Feel free to follow me on twitter but consider muting active travel/cycling as I use the account for cycle campaining mainly (unfortunately, Aberdeen is abysmal in this regard).
