- Her research interests are primarily centred around improving the quality and safety of neonatal care. In particular she is interested in implementation and translating evidence into practice. Her thesis on the implementation of complex interventions to reduce neonatal central-line associated bloodstream infections was a mixed-methods study looking at behavioural change, infection prevention, and organisational context, including the influence of staffing and organisational culture on safety behaviours.
- She has presented her PhD work at several national and international conferences, including oral presentations at the European Association of Paediatric Societies conference (2016, 2020), the RCN International Nursing Conference (April 2017), and as a poster at the Neonatal Society meeting (June 2016). She was honoured to be an invited speaker at the international 99NICU conference (2019) and Reason (2020).
- She was proud to receive the "Best Paper by a Clinical Academic" award in 2019 at the Southampton and Health Research Conference. She has peer-reviewed several papers for publication for leading nursing and medical journals.
