I completed a PhD in 2010 in childhood unintentional injury. I then worked as a research fellow at the University of Nottingham on the 'Keeping Children Safe at Home' research study.
The Keeping Children Safe at Home study was a multi-centre collaboration between Nottingham, Leicester, Newcastle Bristol and Norwich funded by a programme grant from the National Institute for Health Research.
In 2014 I was appointed to my current post of research fellow, in the Division of Psychiatry and Applied Psychology. I am currently working on an MRC funded feasibility study of an interactive, educational programme to facilitate Proactive Assessment of Obesity Risk during Infancy (ProAsk).
