BSc (Hons), MRes, MCSP
Research Associate in Rehabilitation
After qualifying as a physiotherapist in 2006, I worked clinically in both primary and secondary care settings within the NHS, specialising in musculoskeletal physiotherapy. I continue to maintain my clinical skills as a physiotherapist working with developing rugby players (East Midlands Rugby Union U-17 and U-18 squad & Midlands Rugby Football Union U-18 squad).
I successfully completed an National Institute of Health Research (NIHR) Masters of Research in 2015, gaining a distinction and publishing my research project in the British Journal of Community Nursing. I followed up this training by completing the Health Education East Midlands (HEEM) Clinical Scholar Silver Award in 2016. I currently work within the Centre for Rehabilitation Research in Oxford on the BOOST trial.
I am now in my first year of my PhD with the University of Brunel. I am specifically looking at exercise prescription in people living with Rheumatoid Arthritis.
