Nicole is delivering on a range of projects for national and international organisations including the European Organisation for Research and Treatment of Cancer (EORTC), Wessex Cancer Alliance, and Macmillan Cancer Support. Nicole is coordinating health-related quality of life questionnaire projects which involve the development of measures to assess health-related quality of life for people with cancer.

Nicole has previously worked on a variety of studies including a large multicentre prospective cohort study that explored recovery of health and wellbeing in people diagnosed with cancer (HORIZONS); a survey study that assessed the needs of children and young people with a serious condition and their parents during COVID-19 (SHARE study), a study that developed a nutritional awareness tool for use in remote pediatric consultations (Pedi-R-MAPP), and qualitative projects focused on supporting men with prostate cancer (Life After Prostate Cancer Diagnosis study), and another on how people connected with and mobilised supportive services and resources to help them self-manage the consequences of cancer and its treatment.
