Research Fellow in Palliative Care

Role at Hull York Medical School

I am a Research Fellow in Palliative Care working on the DAMPen-D study; Improving the Detection, Assessment, Management, and Prevention of Delirium in Hospices. This study is part of the TRANSFORM Project funded by Yorkshire Cancer Research.


I received my Bachelor's degree in Human Biology at the University of Hull in 2013. I went on to attain a Master's in Translational Oncology with distinction in 2014, also at Hull. I have recently completed a PhD in Medical Sciences at Hull York Medical School. For my PhD I explored the use of Comprehensive Geriatric Assessment for older cancer patients and its potential value in the treatment decision-making process.
