BSc (Hons), MSc
My role within the Centre for Rehabilitation Research in Oxford involves providing assistance to Professor Sallie Lamb and the wider group, including financial planning, reporting and communications. I support our work with the Oxford Collaboration for Leadership in Applied Health Research and Care (CLAHRC), acting as Theme 2 Manager.
I am also responsible for the day-to-day management of the Oxford Pain, Activity and Lifestyle (OPAL) study, a large cohort study which aims to improve the primary care management of low back pain in older people. OPAL is part of the BOOST programme; a package of research projects including a randomised controlled trial designed to evaluate the clinical and cost-effectiveness of group physiotherapy for neurogenic claudication.
Before coming to Oxford in August 2014, I worked for the NIHR Clinical Research Network as a Senior Research Officer, facilitating the set-up and delivery of studies in primary care. I have a background in health psychology and a particular interest in behavioural interventions and primary care research.
