Biography

Biography

Currently I work for both PenARC and the Community and Primary Care Research Group on a variety of projects as the Research Group Coordinator. I hold research expertise in report writing, bid coordination, research contracting, PPI (Patient and Public Involvement), audio transcription, complex data entry and anonymisation of data for research analysis. My skills have also developed in research coding, dissemination, research framework conception and development and service mapping. I hold an interest in mixed methods research, which has been built up from work experience gained and also from academic interest as part of BA (Hons) Childhood and Youth Studies and MSc Social Research. I have 23 years of experience of working in a higher education environment, including over 12 years working in an academic research team, which encompassed working as an academic researcher as part of a complex mental health study.

Research interests

An interest in mixed methods research methodology, built up from work experience gained, and also from academic interest as part of BA (Hons) Childhood and Youth Studies and MSc Social Research. Having worked at the University of Plymouth for 23 years, and within the research team for over 12 years, I have expanded both my practical experience and theoretical knowledge.

I hold an interest in research with children and young people, triggered by academic study with the Open University as part of my BA (Hons). Working as an academic researcher as part of a complex mental health intervention has expanded my research knowledge and capability. My current role of Research Group Coordinator for the Community and Primary Care Research Group allows me to partake in projects of interest, providing management support, and advice and guidance on all aspects of research from bid conception through to dissemination and final report submission.
