I have a medical background with intercalated BSc and MSc research degrees in biomedical sciences and interdisciplinary medicine and engineering, as well as a PhD in the area of neurology and psychiatry. I secured my first post-doctoral position as a research associate in the area of health and social care research in the Division of Population Health, Health Services Research and Primary Care at The University of Manchester. 

During my time at PSSRU (2014 to 2019), I worked across a number of different projects that employed a range of methodologies and involved various stakeholders at different levels, the details of which can be found under the 'research and projects' tab on my profile. I also managed the social media outputs for PSSRU in various formats such as TwitterYouTubeFacebook and the unit Website

In 2019, I became a member of the NIHR Applied Research Collaboration for Greater Manchester (NIHR ARC GM) research team to work within the Healthy Ageing theme, as well as crossover and collaborations with the other ARC themes in Greater Manchester. I also became a member of the UoM's Healthy Ageing Research Group (HARG). In addition to this, I am a dissertation tutor for the Masters in Public Health Programme, supervisor for the NIHR ARC-GM Internship programme and I am also in the process of completing the New Academics and Fellows Programme, which is accredited by the Higher Education Academy (HEA).
