Personal profile


I joined the university in 2019, after working as a Research Associate at Sheffield Teaching Hospitals/Leeds Beckett University on the Cancer, Fertility and Me (CFM) Study, funded by Yorkshire Cancer Research, and at the University of Sheffield. The CFM study was an observational, multi-centre study developing and evaluating a patient decision-aid for women of reproductive age diagnosed with cancer and contemplating fertility preservation before starting their treatment.

I completed my BSc in Psychology (awarded First Class, with Honours) at Sheffield Hallam University. Consecutively, I joined The University of Sheffield: first as a student on the MSc in Psychological Research Methods (awarded with Distinction) in the Department of Psychology, then as an interdisciplinary PhD student in Health Psychology/Medicine at the Sheffield Institute for Translational Neuroscience (SiTran). 

Furthermore, I have a strong background in learning disability nursing, which reflects heavily in my work.

Research Expertise and Interests

My research interests are Decision-Making (especially in the context of fertility preservation, life-limiting and life-threatening illness,), Health Measurement, Health Literacy and Psycho-Oncology (especially late effects of cancer and its treatments). I have a special interest in systematic reviews.

For my PhD, I have developed a Clinician-Rated Clinical Outcome Assessment for Wolf-Hirschhorn syndrome, a rare genetic illness. Due to the rare and thus hard-to-reach patient group as well as methodological challenges, this project required creativity and alternative approaches to scale development/health measurement. As a result, I developed a novel and alternative combination of scale development methods together with my supervisors Professor Georgina Jones (Leeds Beckett University) and Dr Alisdair McNeill (The University of Sheffield).

To date, I have published in the areas of Psycho-Oncology, Chronic Illness (Fibromyalgia, Primary Immunodeficiencies), Genetics & Psychological Disorders/Psychotherapy (Borderline Personality Disorder).

I have presented work both at national (e.g. Division of Health Psychology Conference in Newcastle) as well as international conferences (e.g. World Congress of Psychotherapy in Amsterdam, International Psycho-Oncology Society Conference in Hong Kong). In June 2020, I will be leading a workshop titled "How should Clinician-Rated Clinical Outcome Assessments (COAs) be developed and used in oncology research and clinical practice?" at IPOS 2020 in Japan.

Further, I am a member of the British Psychological Society (BPS) (General, Division of Health Psychology) and the International Psycho-Oncoloy Society (IPOS).
