I am a Research Fellow for the Research on Research (RoR) programme which is an internal programme of work contracted through the NIHR, Evaluations and Trials Studies Coordinating Centre.

I joined the RoR team in June 2018.  I am responsible for contributing to and delivering high quality research projects that include implementing and monitoring continuous improvement in ways of working.  The current RoR research themes are Peer Review and Decision Making and Post-Award Management.

Prior to joining NETSCC, I was a Senior Research Fellow in the Faculty of Health Sciences working on a MRC funded project developing a low-cost, wearable, electrical stimulation device for upper limb rehabilitation post stoke.  This project built on a series of work that investigated controlled, electrical stimulation as a healthcare technology for upper limb rehabilitation for people with chronic stroke and multiple sclerosis. 

My PhD was on visual spatial processing and cognitive ageing. I have also used eye-tracking technology to investigate hand-eye coordination in people with chronic stroke, as well as to provide insight into cognitive processes underlying age-related changes in object location memory and reading.

Research interests

I am committed to research that is high quality, interdisciplinary and addresses real-world challenges related to my core interests. 

My current research portfolio focuses on contributing to, delivering and monitoring continuous improvement in ways of working  There are two complementary streams of work: (1) Peer Review and Decision Making for the allocation of research funding; (2) Theme 2.

I am also interested in understanding user needs, motivations and perceptions of arm rehabilitation in order to: (1) to facilitate uptake of arm rehabilitation; (2) to develop and evaluate novel rehabilitation and healthcare technologies; (3) to understand cultural differences in rehabilitation.

I have a strong interest in research ethics and am motivated by and committed to ensuring the interests of the research participants are a priority in health research.
