I joined the Clinical Trials Unit as a Research Fellow in 2017. I provide epidemiological expertise for several emergency care trials that aim to investigate the effectiveness of tranexamic acid for the prevention and treatment of life-threatening bleeding. These include the WOMAN-2 trial for the prevention of postpartum haemorrhage, the CRASH-3 trial for the treatment of intracranial haemorrhage, and the HALT-IT trial for the treatment of acute gastrointestinal bleeding. My current research is focussed on the methodological issues and biases that arise when conducting clinical trials in an emergency care setting. I also act as a Practical Facilitator on several MSc modules and as a Personal Tutor. Before joining the School I worked in the Cancer Screening and Prevention Research Group at Imperial College London. I have a BSc in Biological Sciences from Imperial College London, an MSc in Epidemiology from LSHTM, and over 8 years of clinical research experience.
