Key Research Interests
My research is mixed methods focusing on older people experiencing the complexities of later life. I am particularly interested in understanding patient experiences and using these to develop and test multidisciplinary interventions. My mixed methods skills facilitate developing and testing these complex interventions in programmes of work culminating in clinical trials.
