I am the project manager for the retrospective arm of Oxford Risk Factors And Non-invasive imaging study (ORFAN). I am working with the Antoniades group to evaluate novel CT imaging biomarkers and risk factors for cardiovascular disease.
I obtained a PGDip in Nursing from the University of Southampton in 2013. After qualifying I worked in intensive care for four years and then moved on to research nursing in order to follow my interest in evidence-based medicine. I started working for the University of Oxford in 2019 when I joined the Jenner Institute as a research nurse. Part of my role at the Jenner Institute was as lead nurse for the phase II/III COVID-19 vaccine trial, along with several malaria vaccine trials.
I joined the Antoniades group in December 2020 as project manager for the UK COVID-19 Cardiovascular Risk Consortium (UK C-19 CRC) which is studying novel CT imaging biomarkers and linking this with patient outcomes after COVID-19 infection. I have since taken on the role of project manager for the retrospective arm of the ORFAN study which the UK C-19 CRC sits under.
