South Cloisters, University of Exeter, St Luke's Campus, Heavitree Road, Exeter, EX1 2LU, UK

Overview

I joined the University of Exeter Medical School (UEMS) as an information specialist in September 2012. In April 2020 I joined the newly created Exeter PRP Evidence Review Facility as a Research Fellow. My role involves working with colleagues to carry out systematic reviews with particular expertise in searching for studies.

Qualifications

  • MSc Library and Information Studies (2009) City University;
  • MA Legal and Political Theory (2005) UCL, University of London;
  • BA Social Policy and Politics (2004) Royal Holloway, University of London.

Career

I completed an MSc in Library and Information Studies at City University, London (2009). Following this I worked as a clinical librarian at Lancashire Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust in Preston, Lancashire (2010-2011). I then moved to the University of Warwick where I worked as an information specialist for Warwick Evidence (2011-2012).

I joined UEMS in September 2012 and before joining the Exeter PRP Evidence Review Facility in April 2020 I worked with PenCLAHRC (now PenARC) (2012-2017) and the Exeter HS&DR Evidence Synthesis Centre (2017-2020). I also spent 18 months working with the UEMS health technology assessment group PenTAG, and worked on HS&DR grant funded realist reviews with external partners at the University of Oxford (IMPACT review; Care Under Pressure) and the University of Surrey (Care Under Pressure 2), and with PenARC colleagues at Plymouth University (Engager II and Multispecialty Community Providers).

Research

Research interests

  • I am interested in increasing the useability of syntheses by all key stakeholders including policy and decision makers, clinicians and patients.
  • I have specific interest and involvement in methods research on searching for studies for systematic reviews, and have contributed to guidance on searching for studies for Cochrane reviews and realist reviews (see my publications page for details).

Research projects

  • The perspectives of information specialists on forward citation searching and web searching in systematic reviews: an interview study using a hermeneutic phenomenological approach.
