I qualified in medicine from King's College London and am undertaking specialty training in Haematology. I am a currently in my first year as a DPhil student, working under the supervision of Dr Simon Stanworth and Dr Nicola Curry in the Oxford Clinical Research in Transfusion Medicine Group, and Dr Ly-Mee Yu (Nuffield Department of Primary Healthcare Sciences).
The main area of my research project is on bleeding in elderly trauma; identifying which factors are associated with bleeding and the derangements in blood clotting (coagulopathy) that occur after trauma. I am also involved in clinical trials in traumatic bleeding. Bleeding after major injuries is one of the leading causes of early death and potentially preventable. The demographics of trauma are changing and people over 65 are now the largest age group affected by major trauma. Investigating the clinical and laboratory factors associated with bleeding in the older population may help us identify targets for therapy and improve treatment of patients with major bleeding.
