I am a Research Assoacite and Clinical Trial Manager working within the Centre for Trials Research at the University. My research interests are focused on working with clinical populations to control symptoms, improve quality of life and delay disease progression, through exercise, nutrition and healthy living. The majority of my research is focused on Knee Osteoarthritis and Type 1 Diabetes, but I am continually seeking opportunities to expand my area of work into other clinical populations. I completed my MSc by Research at Swansea University in 2018 which was focused on determining the accuracy of Intersitital Glucose Monitoring around exercise in individuals with Type 1 Diabetes. I then went on to complete my PhD in 2023 in the Department for Health, at the University of Bath which was focused on the beneficial effecst of nutrition and exercise on clinical symptoms and inflammation in knee osteoarthitis. I am currently the Trial Manager for the TIPTOE study and am working on a Fellowship Application for a Hybrid Effectiveness-Implementation Trial with MSK populations.
