OCTRU Clinical Trials Fellow
I am a physiotherapist currently on a NIHR Clinical Trials fellowship at OCTRU. I was previously a NIHR Doctoral Research Fellow at the University of Warwick Clinical Trials Unit.
While at Warwick, I worked on numerous studies, principally the NIHR-funded SARAH (hand exercise for Rheumatoid Arthritis) RCT and ACTIVATES (exercise for Adolescent Idiopathic Scoliosis) feasibility study.
I also have over 15 years of clinical experience working at various NHS trusts and private practice.
