BSc (Hons), MSc
My role within the Centre for Rehabilitation Research in Oxford (RRIO, part of NDORMS) involves providing assistance to Professor Sallie Lamb and the wider group, including financial planning, reporting and communications. I support our work with the Oxford Collaboration for Leadership in Applied Health Research and Care (CLAHRC), acting as Theme 2 Manager.
I am also responsible for the day-to-day management of the Oxford Pain, Activity and Lifestyle (OPAL) study, a large cohort study which aims to improve the primary care management of low back pain in older people. OPAL is part of the BOOST programme; a package of research projects including a randomised controlled trial designed to evaluate the clinical and cost-effectiveness of group physiotherapy for neurogenic claudication.
Before coming to Oxford in August 2014, I worked for the NIHR Clinical Research Network as a Senior Research Officer, facilitating the set-up and delivery of studies in primary care. I have a background in health psychology and a particular interest in behavioural interventions and primary care research.
