Emma joined the group in July 2017 as a full-time PhD student. Emma’s PhD is focusing on teenage and young adult survivors of childhood brain tumours. She’s interested in the issues that patients (and their family members) experience as they transition from childhood to adulthood. For example – issues with education, living independently and forming relationships.
In previous research roles Emma has studied NHS information systems and their impact on the quality and safety of care. Emma has also worked as a part of the Leeds Primary Care Mental Health Service research team.
