Biography

I am a paramedic and medical researcher. My greatest achievement in life so far is that I was part of a team that successfully resuscitated a rural one-year-old boy who was in arrest after drowning.  Feeling his little heart start beating again under my hands was incredible. My PhD research focuses on designing better emergency and primary care medical systems - we hope to both reduce the burden on emergency departments while simultaneously getting patients the right care, faster.

 

In my personal life I am joyfully married, with a beautiful golden retriever puppy (called Waffles).
