Postgraduate Research Student
I am currently working within the Children’s Health & Exercise Research Centre (CHERC) completing a PhD in cardiac function, fitness and health in children with congenital heart disease. During my PhD I am co-authoring the most recent Cochrane systematic review on the effects of physical activity/exercise interventions in people with congenital heart disease. Alongside this we aim to conduct rehabilitation studies using cutting edge technology, helping to shape future physical activity guidelines for this patient population.

My past academic roles have been a research intern, helping to track the fitness and heart health of elite paediatric athletes going through cardiac screening. I have also been a research assistant in the ‘Cardioman’ trial, conducting and interpreting cardiopulmonary exercise tests in children with Barth syndrome.
Previously I have worked within Primary Care in two separate surgeries, a large GP Federation and in collaboration with the NIHR. I have had several roles including research, clinical, finance, administrative and evaluation work.
