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 currently a 4th year medical student at the University of Leicester having undertaken a MSc in Medical Research the year prior. I have been involved in STARSurg since 2nd year as a data collector and, since joining the committee in 2019, I have held various positions focussing on supporting the regional leads and data analysis. I also hold the position of regional ambassador for ASiT and Medical Student Representative for NRC. I have a particular interest in surgical education, training and research.
