I’m a clinical research fellow based in Edinburgh. My specific interest is in general surgery, and particularly anything to do with data / epidemiology in that area. A lot of my focus within STARSurg has been on the data side of things, including trying to build tools to make running collaborative research projects quicker / easier. I was recently elected as the Association of Surgeons in Training (ASiT) representative for the National Research Collaborative (NRC) – the association of all trainee research collaboratives in the UK.
I am an Academic Foundation Trainee with the Clinical Academic Training Office, University of Cambridge. I previously studied at the GKT School of Medical Education, King’s College London and completed an intercalated Masters in Clinical Neuroscience at The IoPPN. I am an advocate for student involvement in academic medicine and highly recommend engaging with STARSurg Collaborative initiatives for invaluable research experiences in the undergraduate setting.
