MBBCh MA(Oxon) MRCS MPH MRCGP PGCert Med Ed PGDip Health Res CPA Narrative Medicine

Emma works within the Interdisciplinary Research in the Health Sciences Group. She studied Medicine at the University of Oxford and then completed Academic Foundation Training in Bristol before starting training in plastic and reconstructive surgery in Oxford. In 2017 she was awarded a Frank Knox Fellowship to complete a Master's in Public Health at the T.H. Chan School of Public Health, Harvard University before returning to Oxford. She is currently a part time partner at Eynsham Medical Group and is undertaking a Wellcome Trust funded DPhil.

She has an interest in narrative medicine and stories as well as social and community interventions within primary care. Her ACF work evaluated a Connecting Communities initiative and she was part of a team that explored the lived experiences of long Covid. She still has an interest in this area and is involved in a study exploring changes to the metabolome in long Covid patients. However her main research interests focus on the therapeutic relationship and continuity in primary care and how these have altered with the introduction of remote and digital approaches to care and wider changes around working patterns and workforce within general practice. 

In her spare time she loves trail running with her dog and landscape painting.
