As a mixed methods research assistant I carried out quantitative analysis of national and local data related to cancer patient experience. I also used mapping, observation and in-depth interviews with patients and staff to explore the experiences of women with breast cancer throughout their patient journey.

For my MPH dissertation I analysed routine STI surveillance data to evaluate the sexual health and service utilisation of sex workers attending GUM clinics in England. I also conducted a national cross-sectional survey of GUM clinics and key informant interviews to provide context to the results of the data analysis.
