Overview

Anna is a Research Fellow, funded through a NIHR Three Schools Mental Health Research Fellowship. Her research project: Managing young people with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) in primary care (MAP) study: mapping current practice and co-producing guidance on pathways to improve healthcare for an underserved population is based in the Exeter NIHR School for Primary Care Research (SPCR), and linked with the Children and Young People’s Mental Health Research Collaboration (ChYMe).

Anna retains strong links with the Exeter HS&DR Evidence Synthesis Centre, where she worked for two years, conducting syntheses of evidence about the organisation and delivery of health and social care in the UK. Anna completed her PhD in Medical Studies whilst working on the Children and adolescents with ADHD in transition between children’s services and adult services (CATCh-uS) study. She previously worked as a Trial Manager at the Exeter Clinical Trials Unit, managing the Effects of a Modified Muscle Sparing Posterior Technique (SPAIRE) in hip hemiarthoplasty (HemiSPAIRE) randomised controlled trial. 

Broad research specialisms

Anna has extensive experience of working in child and adolescent health, with a focus on neurodiversity and healthcare transitions. She has developed expertise in mapping health service provision, using collaborative research techniques that engage a range of research partners including those with lived experience. Her focus is on improving mental health and wellbeing in underserved populations, through exploring access to health and social care. She is experienced in conducting evidence syntheses to inform health and social care policy. She has also worked in clinical trial management, with a focus on trials with the potential to inform healthcare guidelines. 

Career 

Anna graduated with an honours degree in Psychology from the University of Exeter in 2012. Since then she has worked at the University of Exeter Medical School in the Children and Young People’s Mental Health Research Collaboration (ChYMe), the Clinical Trials Unit, the Evidence Synthesis and Modelling for Health Improvement centre, and most recently the Exeter NIHR School for Primary Care Research (SPCR). She gained her PhD in Medical Studies in October 2019.

Anna is interested in the use of early interventions to promote health and wellbeing in children and families, as well as supporting young peoples' transitions into adulthood. She is focussed on the co-creation of research that aims to help ensure that health and social services are accessable to all. She also has wide interests in schools and other educational contexts, with personal experience of supporting neurodiversity, home education, and flexi-schooling.
