I am a Research Officer working within the School of Population Health Implementation science team. I help to coordinate multi-site studies, conduct clinician interviews and focus groups, and contribute to the development, implementation and monitoring of site-specific interventions.

I am currently working on the ALIGN and ENGAGE projects with colleagues at SCHN and will soon be involved with P-OMICs-flow. I have 2 years’ experience as an implementation lead and over 6 years’ experience as a clinical researcher, managing large patient cohorts and genomic datasets. I am also a trained associate genetic counsellor, with clinical experience in familial cancer and prenatal care.

A selection of my journal articles is below. See more research publications on Google Scholar.
