PPI and Programme Manager
I am responsible for the Patient and Public Involvement (PPI) work of the cross-cutting Partnerships for Health, Wealth and Innovation (PHWI) theme of the NIHR Oxford Biomedical Research Centre (BRC). This includes the development and implementation of the PPI strategy, with a view to supporting researchers in their PPI and integrating it across all themes of the BRC.
I have a background in health communication, in particular creating content in a variety of formats for lay users. I have a keen interest in promoting the relevance and importance of science and research, especially in health, to a wider audience and believe everyone has something to offer that can help advance progress in this area. I have also taught English as a foreign language and have seen how the way in which information is presented can make a huge difference to how people receive and respond to it.
I have a degree in biomedical science, a postgraduate editorial/journalism qualification and obtained the Trinity Certificate in TESOL.
