NIHR Postdoctoral Fellow
- Specialty Registrar in Plastic Surgery, Health Education Thames Valley
I undertook clinical and academic training in Edinburgh, Nottingham, Bradford, Sheffield, The Mayo Clinic, and Stoke Mandeville before moving to Oxford.
Previously, I have held an NIHR Academic Clinical Fellowship and a Departmental Clinical Lectureship in Oxford before securing this NIHR Postdoctoral Fellowship.
My research focusses on improving how we measure outcomes in hand and plastic surgery, and applying this in different scenarios. These include clinical trials and observational studies (harnessing my role as the trainee lead for hand surgery at the Reconstructive Surgery Trials Network - www.reconstructivesurgerytrials.net), and in clinical decision-making solutions.
I am interested in evidence synthesis, clinical guideline development, and health service policy. I am an honorary research fellow at Warwick Evidence (University of Warwick) and have held both a Scholarship and a Fellowship at The National Institute for Health & Care Excellence (NICE).
I am also involved in the development and management of the British Society for Surgery of the Hand (BSSH)'s UK National Hand Registry, and quality improvement in healthcare.
