Personal profile

Current research activities

I am currently working on the following three research studies:

Validation of Early Warning Score & Lactate in Prehospital Screening: The VELPS Study

Validation of Early Warning Score in Paediatric Ambulance Patients: The VESPA Study

Validation of an Older Persons Prehospital Early Warning Score: The VOPPES Study

Other areas of expertise available for knowledge exchange

Neurosurgery: traumatic brain injury, neuro-oncology.

Neuropsychology: outcome and recovery after head injury.

Area of academic expertise - outline

Prior to joining UWS in 2014, I had spent the previous 20 years at the University of Glasgow, where I was involved in a number of research studies and clinical trials, within Neurosurgery and Oncology, focusing on improving patient outcomes following injury and serious illness.

Desired research direction

I aim to build on my experience thus far, in research focused on improving outcomes following serious illness.
