I have worked as a Clinical Trial Administrative Coordinator on the DRAFFT2 trial which was run from the University of Oxford. In this position, I was involved in all aspects of trial management. This included maintaining the Trial Master File, drafting the risk assessment, attending the REC panel for ethics approval and designing Case Report Forms.

I have come from a biological science background and I have undertaken lab-based research in a number of areas and topics. These include diabetes, lipid species, enzyme sensitive diagnostic probes and time-series analysis of the plasma membrane potential.
