Biography

Dr Fuller (née Taylor) joined the University of Nottingham in 2013 as a Research Assistant on an NIHR funded mixed-methods study to develop and evaluate a novel smoking prevention intervention aimed at school-aged children, undertaking qualitative data collection and analysis. A mixed-methods PhD with a strong qualitative emphasis followed, exploring student drinking in the transition to university and across the first academic year (completed April 2019).

She now resides as a Qualitative Research Fellow within Academic Rheumatology, where she works on a number of studies relating to gout, CPPD, osteoarthritis and inflammatory conditions. Current studies include an NIHR and Arthritis Research UK funded study to evaluate the feasibility of a nurse-led package of care for knee pain; an Outcome Measures in Rheumatology (OMERACT) study to develop a set of validated outcome measures for Crystal Pyrophosphate Disease, and; an NIHR-HTA funded study developing risk-stratified, cost-effective, and acceptable blood-test monitoring strategies for inflammatory conditions treated with commonly used immune suppressing drugs.

Current Research

My main area of expertise and interest lies in using qualitative research techniques, as well as mixed-methods research, which I have applied across a broad range of health research topics. Previous roles have included the use of qualitative methods in the evaluation of public health interventions, and for my PhD I took a mixed-methods approach to explore changes in alcohol consumption as students transitioned to university. I currently reside as a Research Fellow in Academic Rheumatology, with my primary role focusing on undertaking qualitative research across various studies.
