Senior Research Fellow, Faculty of Medicine & Health Sciences
I was awarded my first degree, MPharm (Hons), by the University of Brighton in 2001. On completion of my pre-registration training with Moss (Alliance) Pharmacy in 2002 I continued working with Alliance Pharmacy until 2007 in various managerial roles and briefly as a relief pharmacist. After this I continued working in community pharmacy as a locum pharmacist. I was awarded a PhD from the University of Nottingham in 2011.

I am currently working on a number of projects under the theme of 'Patient Safety' at the Division of Primary Care, School of Medicine under the leadership of Prof Tony Avery. I am continuing to develop my research interest in the area of adolescent health with a specific focus on the management of medicines and illness. I am interested in understanding the challenges of self-managing long-term conditions in first year undergraduate students as they make the transition to university in order to help develop possible solutions to support this group of patients.
I completed my PhD under the supervision of Prof Rachel Elliott and Prof Cris Glazebrook here at the University of Nottingham. My thesis entitled 'Factors related to medicines adherence in adolescents with asthma' used a systematic review, qualitative inquiry (photo-interviews) and quantitative inquiry (online survey) to explore this topic. I was involved in the Department of Health funded project that evaluated the effectiveness of the New Medicines Service (NMS); a new pharmacy service offered by community pharmacy in England since October 2011. I was part of the team involved in synthesising evidence to ascertain the role of pharmacists in the supply of non-prescription medicines to help inform the proposal to introduce self-selection of pharmacy (P) medicines in the UK.
