Research Assistant in Psoriatic Arthritis
I joined NDORMS in April 2020 as a Research Assistant in Psoriatic Arthritis (PsA) working with Laura Coates at the at the Botnar Research Centre. The Oxford PsA Centre (Ox-PACE) undertakes a variety of research in the field of psoriatic arthritis including laboratory science and clinical research.
As a Research Assistant, I am involved in two projects. The first is a James Lind Alliance priority setting partnership (PSP) examining the research priorities in PsA. This work will help to identify true unmet needs or research priorities to guide the direction of future research in PsA. The second project is working with an international team of patients and researchers to develop patient focused materials on lifestyle advice in PsA.
My research interests are population-based healthcare and developing models for people with musculoskeletal problems. I have a master’s in Evidence-Based Healthcare, experience on systematic reviewing and the research methodologies underpinning evidence-based practice.
