Personal profile

Research interests

I am a health services researcher and medical doctor, specialising in kidney disease and transplantation. I split my time between clinical practice as a Consultant in Renal Medicine at Southmead Hospital, and research in the Population Health Sciences department at the University of Bristol. My mixed-methods research focuses on understanding and overcoming barriers to living-donor kidney transplantation, particularly those that affect socioeconomically deprived individuals.  

I have been funded by NIHR, Kidney Research UK and the Wellcome Trust. In my NIHR Doctoral Research Fellowship I used mixed-methods to understand the relationship between socioeconomic position and reduced uptake of living-donor kidney transplants. I was awarded my PhD in September 2016. From 2016-2018 whilst working as a Clinical Lecturer I was the Chief Investigator for a large multicentre project funded by Kidney Research UK to further investigate and quantify the effect of barriers to living-donor kidney transplantation identified in my doctoral work. 

In April 2019 I started a Wellcome Trust Clinical Research Career Development Fellowship to undertake the first stage of intervention work 'The development and feasibility trial of a complex intervention to improve AccesS to living-donor Kidney transplantation: the ASK trial'.

I was awarded the AEG Raine award for 2018 by the UK Renal Association. This annual award recognises one early career researcher for their significant contribution to UK renal research.
