Pre-doctoral researcher, University of Aberdeen

My research interests lie in the field of clinical trials methodology and evidence-based medicine, and my PhD studies as part of the Trial Forge project at the University of Aberdeen are central to those interests. My research project focuses on how we recruit volunteers into clinical trials, in the hope of unearthing aspects of recruitment that may improve the efficiency of this area of the trials world in both publicly-funded and commercial spheres, and on a global scale.

I am particularly interested in how trial recruitment may be improved through collaboration with marketing, branding and social media fields, and hope to evaluate an original intervention based around these principles as part of my PhD work.
