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.
Dr Fuller has taught on the 'Qualitative Methodology and Analysis' module for the Masters of Public Health/Global Health and Masters of Sports and Exercise Medicine courses.

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.
