I am a Research Associate in the Wounds Research Group, Division of Nursing, Midwifery and Social Work, working on Evidence Synthesis for Pressure Ulcer Prevention and Treatment project led by Dr Jo Dumville. 

Prior to this, I began my PhD study at the University of Manchester in 2015, and completed my PhD thesis entitled "Evidence synthesis for pressure ulcer prediction and prevention: Exploring prognosis evidence in populations at risk of pressure ulcers and identifying effective treatments" in 2019.

My primary research interests lie in the field of evidence synthesis and applied health research with a focus on wound care, specifically the management of pressure ulcers. I am skilled in the use of advanced meta-analysis methods (e.g., network meta-analysis and individual participant data analysis), and have expertise of undertaking prognosis systematic reviews and network meta-analysis.
