Overview

I worked within mental health services for a number of years prior to returning to education and completing my undergraduate degree in Human behavioral studies.  Following this I completed my MSc with UEMS in Environment and Human Health where I completed a secondary data analysis examining the accumulation and dissipation of Protoporphyrin IX   (PpIX) in photodynamic therapy (MAL-PDT), a treatment for non-melanoma skin cancer.

Currently I am working as a Research Associate/ PhD student within the ECEHH on the Smartline project which is a research project looking at how technology can be used to help individual’s live healthier and happier lives. It is a partnership project led by the University of Exeter with Coastline Housing Ltd, Cornwall Council and Volunteer Cornwall.
