I have been involved in projects at the SSRU since May 2013 and joined the EPPI-Centre at the SSRU in August 2014. Prior to pursuing a career in academia, I had extensive experience in the commercial world, working in media and television.  I now conduct health focused systematic reviews, with topics ranging from impact of medical conditions on various demographic groups to health benefits of improved domestic services. I have recently completed my PhD on children's participation in medicines research and development. I am a qualified herbal practitioner and medical ethnobotanist. 

Research Summary
My research interests generally centre on public involvement in research, medicine, public health and developing methods in evidence-based health policy-creation. I am particularly interested in research involving children and people from underrepresented communities.   My other research interests include: discourse analysis methods; research methods development; diversity; evidence mapping methods, Bakhtinian theory; intrapersonal role conflict theory; children's rights; developing methods for children's involvement in medicines research and development; interdisciplinary collaboration methods and impact of medical history awareness on personal medical decisions.
