Project Manager / Postdoctoral Researcher
I have experience in managing funded multi-centre NHS research studies and trials. This has entailed communicating with vast multidisciplinary teams, gaining knowledge in research ethics, governance and processes (in both the NHS and Academic Institutions), managing budgets, and continually monitoring data.
I am the project manager for the Synergi Collaborative Centre, a five year initiative funded by the Lankelly Chase Foundation to reframe, rethink and transform the realities of ethnic inequalities in severe mental illness and multiple disadvantage.
I am the co-PI for Co-Pact, a project funded by the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) Policy Research Programme, that combines photovoice and experience based co-design to foreground lived experience and propose changes to the Mental Health Act to reduce ethnic inequalities.
