Biographical details

 

Since I joined King's in 2017, I've been working within the Centre for Implementation Science, Department of Health Service and Population Research. Here my role and responsibilities are focused on the design and execution of hybrid research studies which evaluate effectiveness and implementation of interventions in healthcare settings. I work in collaboration with the NIHR ARC Diabetes Research Team, the NIHR Biomedical Research Centre and the Department of Adult Nursing.

 

I also work on quality improvements in cancer multidisciplinary teams in collaboration with a range of healthcare stakeholders. This work builds on my doctoral research focused on decision-making and communication in cancer multidisciplinary teams by utilising methods and approaches from cognitive, communication and team sciences.

 

Prior to joining King’s, I worked as an academic researcher at University College London, Kingston University, and Imperial College London, and as an assistant clinical psychologist at Royal Free London NHS Trust and private therapy clinic. 

 

My expertise is in research design, mixed research methodology (quant and quali) and applied healthcare research that includes a range of stakeholders and spans a range of conditions, including cancer, diabetes, mental health, speech impediments, dementia, stroke, and neurodevelopmental conditions (e.g., Williams syndrome, Down syndrome).
