I completed my undergraduate degree in Psychology at Downing College, Cambridge. Following this I taught Mathematics in a challenging secondary school in the West Midlands. Last year I completed an MSc in Clinical Psychology at the University of Leiden and completed an internship in the Psychology department at the University of Reading. I started working as a Graduate Research Assistant at the University of Oxford in July 2015.

Graduate Research Assistant

Risk and Safety Research Group

My role is to support the Patient Safety Collaborative at the Oxford Academic Health Science Network (AHSN). I carry out research to improve the safety of patients across the different workstreams, from mental health to sepsis to acute kidney injury.

We recently published findings on the Safety in Mental Health clinical programme: a quality improvement project to reduce rates of failure to return from leave in acute psychiatric wards. Currently I am supporting the sepsis workstream with the development of a coding system to evaluate the effect of interventions using routine data. This data system will be used for tracking the progress of local quality improvement efforts to improve outcomes of septic patients. In the acute kidney injury (AKI) workstream, I am working with clinicians to understand the epidemiology of AKI, identify patients at risk of deterioration and evaluate the impact of local interventions.
