I am an academic Pharmacist and researcher with rich experience in personalised medicine for cardiovascular diseases. I also have a special interest in primary research on health care errors & patient safety using both qualitative and quantitative methods.

I have conducted several COVID-19-related research. My paper on COVID-19 information overload is the second most relevant paper in the field of COVID-19 information overload. This study, with four other high-quality studies, are hosted by the World Health Organization’s (WHO) database of COVID-19 evidence.

I presently conduct primary research and evaluation in areas where a need has been evidenced as part of the rapid evidence review process of the Wales COVID-19 Evidence Centre (WCEC) and in discussion with WCEC expert stakeholders (viz. Welsh government, health and care leaders, National Health Service (NHS), industry, charitable and public sectors, and other academic institutions).
