I am a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the Patient Centred Outcomes Group at Leeds Institute of Medical Research at St. James’s. I have studied and worked at the University of Leeds since 2013. My main research interests are around quality of life of cancer patients and their caregivers. I am also interested in research including children and young people.
I obtained my PhD in 2021, which was a mixed-methods study based on the supportive care needs of teenage and young adult brain tumour survivors and their caregivers.
I am currently leading a Wellcome Trust funded project that aims to understand more about adult brain tumours survivors returning to work after treatment.
