I am a research associate working for the Wales Centre For Evidence Based Care, a JBI Centre of Excellence ( As part of my work, I contribute to the production of rapid reviews which aim to answer priority questions for policy and practice in Wales. I am also working on a project exploring people’s experiences with cancer immunotherapy.

My other research interests lie in rehabilitation and physical activity. Prior to joining the Wales Centre For Evidence Based Care, I have worked on projects focusing on supportive care interventions for people affected by cancer, including cancer rehabilitation. I have completed my PhD thesis at Cardiff University, which investigated how two cancer rehabilitation services work in South Wales.

I am also a trained and registered physiotherapist (HCPC), having completed my BSc at University of Szeged, in Hungary and my MSc at Cardiff University.
