Research Projects


Rosie is currently the Senior Research Assistant for the SupportBack Study; a study investigating the feasibility of an internet invention to support the self-management of low back pain in Primary Care (CI: Dr Adam Geraghty). Rosie developed the complex multi-session internet intervention using LifeGuide software, and managed the subsequent clinical trial examining it’s feasibility within the low back pain population.


Rosie has utilised her qualitative research and analysis skills as a member of the MABCan study team (CI: Dr Caroline Eyles); the aim of this qualitative study is to explore breast cancer patients’ understanding and perceptions of mindfulness-based interventions, and to begin design and development of an adapted mindfulness intervention for this patient group.


Rosie is studying for a PhD funded by the NIHR School for Primary Care Research (SPCR).
