I am an experienced health services researcher, with a particular interest in the application of mixed methods in health technology assessment. My published work includes systematic reviews, qualitative interview studies, cross sectional and longitudinal surveys and randomised controlled trials. 

I am currently working as a Research facilitator for the NIHR RDS NE. In this role I act as first contact for health professionals and academic staff wishing to apply for NIHR or other peer reviewed funding for health and social care research.  I advise on study design and methods, possible funding sources and link applicants to specialist support provided by the RDS (including statistics, health economics, qualitative research). 

I am also a member of the Institute of Health and Society Decision Making and Organisation of Care research theme, where my recent work has included a study led by Dr Cath Exley examining how clinicians and patients negotiate clinical need and treatment decisions in dentistry ISODs study
