I joined PenCLAHRC (Exeter Medical School) in November 2016. My role within PenCLAHRC is to demonstrate how implementation science can inform healthcare organisations to transfer scientific evidence into practical solutions to enhance safety and efficiency of healthcare services.

I am a Chartered Ergonomist and have a clinical background as a Physiotherapist within the NHS. I have experience in field based research and consultancy activities within healthcare organisations, primarily understanding how system design impacts the safety and performance of everyday work. I continue to provide training in the area of Human Factors and support MSc level courses relating to healthcare Human Factors.
