Biography

I am a PhD student at the University of Nottingham jointly funded by the University of Nottingham and NIHR School of Primary Care Research. My current research focuses on the epidemiology of childhood injuries and associations between childhood injuries and maternal mental illnesses.

In 2007 I completed my medical training at the University of Nottingham and subsequently completed the Foundation Programme in 2009. During my foundation programme, I undertook a four month placement in public health where I applied for funding from the Government's Migration Impacts Fund to work with asylum seekers and EU migrants in Nottingham City for the following year. In 2010, I commenced the public health training scheme in the East Midlands, through which I completed a Masters in Public Health (MPH) and my Membership of the Faculty of Public Health (MFPH) examinations. I am now undertaking a PhD looking at associations between maternal mental health and childhood injuries.
