Research interests: Neurology, in particular neuroplasticity and rehabilitation of stroke patients.

In an NIHR Clinical Academic Doctoral fellowship (2015–2018), I successfully developed standardised protocols, set up and ran a mixed-methods, randomized, blinded feasibility study exploring sensory stimulation to the foot post-stroke.

Previously, I was a blinded assessor for the FAST INdiCATE trial: “Clinical efficacy of functional strength training for upper limb motor recovery early after stroke: neural correlates and prognostic indicators” funded by the NIHR/MRC Efficacy and Mechanism Evaluation (EME) programme.

My NIHR CRN Research Scholarship and West Midlands Post-Doctoral Bridging Fellowship will facilitate the progression of my research to benefit stroke survivors.
