Sam Mason


My background is in research and performance review. I currently work on 'Life and Bladder Cancer: The Yorkshire Cancer Research Patient Reported Outcome Measures Survey'.I support a Yorkshire Cancer Research (YCR) funded, cross-sectional and longitudinal survey of bladder cancer patients. I obtained an undergraduate degree in Psychology in 2008 and a postgraduate degree in Forensic Psychology in 2009, both from Sheffield Hallam University. Between 2010 and 2013 I worked part time with South Yorkshire Police as a performance review officer identifying and reporting trends and exceptions in crime and police custody data. Alongside this role, I worked as an associate lecturer at Sheffield Hallam University from 2010 to 2015 teaching seminars as part of the psychology undergraduate programme. I first joined the University of Leeds in July 2013 as a research assistant on the NIHR funded project, Evaluation of patient preferences for and cost effectiveness of Outpatient Parenteral Antimicrobial Therapy (OPAT). Following a role as a researcher in the third sector, I rejoined the University in 2016.
