My passion is facilitating socially beneficial collaborative endeavours. I am currently engaged in a multidisciplinary PhD in Digital Economy, with the Horizon Digital Economy Institute, at the University of Nottingham, England. My research straddles Computer Science, Engineering and Medicine.
My PhD addresses young adults’ attitudes towards receiving and sharing genomic information with an overall aim to produce principles for design to support genomics information sharing. I hold an MSc in Health Services Research and a BSc in Professional Practice (Nursing), all from the University of Nottingham. I have been a registered mental health nurse with the NHS, in team leadership roles and as a Community Mental Health Nurse.
I am a PRINCE2 certified project manager, with hands-on risk assessment and change management experience: having successfully project managed and facilitated technical, medical and safety improvement collaborative efforts in primary, secondary and tertiary care healthcare environments.
I project-led Safer Prescribing at Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust, part of the Health Foundation’s Safer Clinical Systems Programme. I have also managed the Medicines Management Services Programme in Southern Derbyshire and the Electronic Patient Records Project in Nottingham’s hospitals and community.
I these roles I ran workshops, undertook stakeholder analysis and engagement, benefits management and dissemination. My PhD studies have enriched my research knowledge and skills as well as adding to my project management abilities, software engineering knowledge and creative business development skills for ingenuity and innovation.
