I have a longstanding interest in research and quality improvement within the healthcare setting, and as such have both collaborated and lead on several prospective service evaluations, audits and quality improvement projects. I am a qualified medical doctor working in Anesthesia and Critical Care, and my experiences working in an acute healthcare setting that inform my research interests. As of August 2018, I have been enrolled as a PhD candidate at Imperial College London, with the opportunity to explore organisational psychology within the NHS. The research is predominantly qualitative and focuses upon staff working in both the critical care and emergency environments, exploring psychological safety, personality and the factors that contribute to an individual’s response to stress.
