I am a trauma and orthopaedic registrar (ST6) and Royal College of Surgeons of England research fellow at the John Radcliffe Hospital. I am Chair of the Oxford Surgical Collaborative for Audit and Research (OxSCAR) and have led a number of trainee collaborative projects, coordinating 250 collaborators from over 80 NHS sites.
During my DPhil I aim to understand how patients’ experience of pain affects their functional recovery after ankle fracture surgery and to co-design a rehabilitation package to facilitate weight-bearing.
When not #Collaborating – you’ll find me rowing on the ISIS or training with the @UniofOxford Mixed Martial Arts club: Stay tuned for varsity in March!
