I am a PhD student in Improving Patient Care at the Division of Population Medicine. I am currently developing an intervention which aims to encourage and support the involvement of adolescents with long-term conditions in shared decision-making. My research to date has mainly involved systematic reviewing and conducting task-based qualitative interviews with young patients. I have also assisted with data collection on the ABACus study with the Centre for Trials Research, which aims to improve cancer symptom awareness and help-seeking among people living in socioeconomically deprived communities.

My teaching experience includes acting as a tutor for first year Medicine students' Practical Research Experience Project since 2017. In 2017 I also joined The Scholars Programme through The Brilliant Club, which involes delivering in-school tutorials to pupils aged 10-18 to help them to develop the knowledge, skills and ambition needed to progress to highly-selective universities.
