I am a Dietitian at Leeds Children’s Hospital, specialising in Cystic Fibrosis for the past 8 years. Following completion of a HEE/NIHR funded MRes and bridging fellowship, I started my PhD (a HEE/NIHR Clinical Doctoral Research Fellowship) in April 2019. I am developing a care pathway for pre-adolescent children with CF to be supported in self-care of their diet and gut.

Research interests

Children and young people’s nutrition and health, long-term and life-limiting conditions (particularly CF), support of self-care/ management, outcome measures
