I am a research fellow on the CanTest project, based in Primary Care within the University of Exeter Medical School. CanTest aims to assess the accuracy, safety, cost effectiveness and suitability of a range of diagnostic methods and tools to improve cancer diagnostics in primary care.

Alongside this role, I am involved in investigating risk markers of cancer to expedite diagnosis, primarily using routinely collected health data from sources such as the Clinical Practice Research Datalink (CPRD). My most recent project involves quantifying the cancer risk associated with thrombocytosis (raised platelet count).


I am a co-applicant on an NIHR Research for Patient Benefit (RfPB) grant; a feasibility RCT which is investigating the effectiveness of virtual reality therapy for children with cerebral palsy. The project involves a multi-disciplinary team and is led by researchers from Sussex University.
