Personal profile


I am an interdisciplinary researcher and Chartered Psychologist with expertise in qualitative research and engaging seldom heard populations in education and healthcare research contexts. Creating ethical, productive spaces that engage and enable a wide range of stakeholders to participate in research and everyday life is a skill that I continue to value and build upon in my current research and practice.

I am currently involved in research concerning the high-profile field of patient online records access in England. Alongside this, I am supporting a range of Patient and Public Involvement and Engagement activities with leaders in medical curriculum development and as an advisor to the NHS England and NHS Improvement Transformation Team. Translation of research knowledge from my work has informed professional practice in adapting to policy changes both in education, and health policy contexts.
