Personal profile

Academic Background

I am a first-year postgraduate researcher in the School of Health Sciences at the UEA, exploring how older adults living in deprived coastal communities engage with digital technologies for health and social care activities.

Prior to joining the UEA, I worked as a Research Assistant at the University of Manchester where I supported with the delivery of qualitative health services research projects. This included interview and focus group studies with patients and healthcare personnel, focussed on improving access to Audiology (hearing health) services for autistic adults and children and people with learning disabilities and supporting effective communication for older adults with age-related hearing loss in community pharmacy settings.

Prior to this, I undertook a research internship in the School of Health Sciences at the UEA, supporting with a Health Education England project exploring new and emerging roles in health and social care services to support autistic people and people with learning disabilities.
